From the bottom of our hearts: Thank you!

It is incredible how time passes; it started as a good idea and became a great reality.  The determination of the communities to protect their territory and to improve their quality of life allowed the implementation process of the analog forestry methodology.

30 families from these communities have now better incomes as a result of their hard work. Patience and perseverance was the key to their success, it took a lot of time to set the land, to build the greenhouses and to plant the species.

The families overcame all the obstacles and learnt during the process. Thanks to the team effort, and the support from the donors, the 30 families have now the capacity to keep going by themselves. They have the tools, the knowledge, the expertise and most of all the enthusiasm to keep working for the benefits of their communities.

From Ceferino, Eloy, Farneth, Pedro, Leonardo, Gilberto, Tulio, Modesto, Norberto, Wiston, Felipe, Manuel, Melkin, Antonio, Jesús Aledson, Candelario, Robinson, Tiberio, César, Jhon, Deison, Elías, Mincho, Chachito, Daflin, Eutimio, Tomás and from our team receive our thanks!
