Help us protect and restore the Atlantic Rainforest, one of the most biologically diverse and richest ecosystems in the world. Despite its importance to the people of Rio de Janeiro, Sao Paulo, and millions of others, the forest is severely endangered, as only 12% of this precious rainforest remains. Our project aims to sustainably plant 10,000 native trees, restoring nutrients to degraded soil, and build a positive relationship between the forest and those who live within it.
The project aims at providing a training program to Brazilian youths from the poorest suburbs of Sao Paulo. This will allow them to find a job in fields such as computing, HR assistant and administrative assistant. Basic English is also taught.

Courses take place in Sao Paulo at Associacao Danyann: Aprender e Evoluir (Learn and Evolve (ADAE).
Our goal is to help the development of underprivileged children by promoting core values such as friendship, respect, honesty, and solidarity.
