SOURCE is a non-governmental organization that works with communities dealing with environmental pollution and health problems principally caused by extractive industries. SOURCE provides high-level technological and scientific support completely free of charge to the communities with whom it works, helping them to assess the damage to the community’s resources and enabling them to promote restorative actions. In addition, SOURCE trains local leaders, called promoters, so they can develop and promote their own environmental and social monitoring systems. Promoters are responsible for training other promoters in their region, therefore guaranteeing greater efficiency and the sustainability of the model.
