The De Silva's, with support from the Ministry of Amerindian Affairs in Guyana, have incorporated teachings from Mr. Akers and Dr. Chan into their cosmetic production practice and continue to successfully produce soaps and creams. Partners of the Americas' Farmer to Farmer Program, together with FAVACA and Dr. Chan, are currently helping Waini Naturals to source product inputs which will allow them to expand production further and develop a sustainable rural business.
