Reviews for Terra Segura International

Rating: 3 stars  

Terra Segura International has been inactive since about 2002. It concentrated on developing technology to clear landmines, and won praise from many people and agencies, including a former Prime Minister of Canada and NATO's anonymous reviewers of contractors.

The problem of landmines has not gone away, though it has eased somewhat. Good, cheap, ubiquitous technology is still necessary. The possibility still exists that Terra Segura will be revived, most probably to develop projects in Afghanistan.

Terra Segura means "safe ground" or "safe earth" in Latin.

For some outdated information, please visit www.terrasegura.org. Thank you for visiting.

(PS: The reviewer, TikTock, who left a highly negative review, is, according to strong documentary evidence, a man named Rene Branconnier who defrauded the company he refers to as G8. The story about this may be seen at www.global8net. org. He has never been associated with Terra Segura International, but has a strong interest in damaging the organization in order to get at the founder, myself, because I am the whistleblower who exposed him to the Securities and Exchange Commission and other law enforcement.)

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Developing appropriate technology through R&D, helping by writing articles in industry and defense journals to redefine landmine clearing as a public health enterprise rather than a quasi-military/acute care activity.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Revive it, develop a more organically supportable business model, be more hard-headed in developing the team, develop more resources before going public, and then get out of the way of the passion of the team to get the job done.

Check the Nevada Secretary of State. This company is suspended in California. Entity #C1885740. This Company is also working with the same officer on another non-profit Mount Olive Church of God in Christ. They are also using piclopedia as a non-registered non-profit organization, and asking individuals to continue making cheques to Terra Seguara.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

promote what this company does. It is unclear. How did it ever receive exemption status? and for what?

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Pay shareholders of G8 the damage it has done to its shareholders.

Ways to make it better...

The Company existed in the data base of the Californa Secretary of State.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Leadership, direction, focus, mission statement, website.

One thing I'd also say is that...

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

One time
