The prototype that changed our world
Learn the story behind our first project
Cimarron was Mambe's first project. It was created in 2015 through philan-therapy, and it ended up being the prototype for what we now believe to be the way to end poverty: our CIDS (Centers of Innovation and Sustainable Development).
Initially called The Great Maloka, this project aimed to capture the essence of the traditional and ancestral longhouses found in indigenous villages along the Amazon. And in doing so, it became a place for the Cimarron community to grow stronger and more empowered to make its needs, dreams, and ideas heard again.
At the very beginning, we dove deep into the issues and problems affecting the community and tried to really understand the essence of its people to embrace change and transformation from within.
During the second phase of our project we realized that in order for dreams to come true, the community needed a safe space where they could feel empowered and regain confidence in themselves.
Bringing dreams to life
Once the community began making this space their own, we saw with our own eyes the power of what we now call CIDS. This place gave the community a chance to gather, to create and to channel their energy towards life-changing projects
Our biggest success in Cimarron was the understanding of the CIDS as a key element towards the eradication of poverty. In this prototype is where projects began to sprout, confidence became tangible and dreams lead the way towards a future without poverty
