The Caguayo Foundation
This measure was reported by civil society.
Describe the main features of the measure/initiative: 
The creation of the Caguayo Foundation has had, as a novelty, the capacity to be a self-sustaining apparatus that, through its actions, can carry out projects both at the local and national levels that have a positive impact on the communities. The main exponent is the Caguayo Workshop of Monumental and Applied Arts, located in the city of Santiago de Cuba, which not only has the mission of fulfilling its artistic objectives, but also of functioning as a dynamic node in the community where it is located. Similarly, the Prado de las Esculturas project continues this mission of promoting culture through the inclusion of diverse audiences, which allows for sustainable social development.
What are the results achieved so far through the implementation of the measure/initiative?: 
Since the creation of the workshop, it has been possible to create a space conducive to the creation of sculptures in different formats. However, since there is no school for casters, training had to be carried out in order to have a trained staff to carry out these functions. Under these circumstances, a training activity is carried out with the population of the community where it is located. This allows the main work force of the workshop to come from the rural community of Dos Caminos, in San Luis municipality, which favors the generation of jobs and the continuity in the training of human resources and the conservation of the foundry trade. From the social point of view, the workshop also constitutes a space for the development of cultural actions in which the local population is the main beneficiary and promoter. Similarly, the Prado de las Esculturas, located in a rural community, is an expression of the intention to reactivate a space for the recreation of the population, from the inclusion of its inhabitants.
