INUIT PEOPLES – Community Center Improvements
The Inti Raymi Fund provided $25,000USD into the small fishing village of Llimanaq, near Llulissat, Greenland. These funds will be used to renovate and furnish amenities for the entire village of approximately 84 people to use during their harsh winters with 24 hours of darkness.
Socialization during their long winter days & nights is very important and having a furnished community center with updated cooking equipment, television & media equipment, board games along with new tables and chairs, will play a real positive affect for years to come on the community as a whole.
The Inti Raymi Fund became aware of the project during our attendance of the 2015 United Nations Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues. We met Ane-Maria Petersen at the conference, a very socially responsible young journalist from near this region in Greenland. We supported her journey from Nuuk, Greenland while attending a university to allow her and her son to help us support her Inuit Peoples of Greenland.
