Project Report | Jun 1, 2016
Time to celebrate new partnerships!

Hello, dear friends and supporters,

Half a year far from the rain season and reforestation efforts, we have amazing news to share.

First, we've been choosen (among more than 1500 other initiatives in Brazil) for a partnership with "Brazil Foundation", which will support our reforestation program for 12 months. Though the grant is not enough to cover all expenses, it shall be sufficient to guarantee 20 plantings at the end of the year. All the family farmers have been selected already, mainly based on their urgency, and their seedlings are vigorously growing in our tree nursery while you read this report.

Furthermore, last week, our friends from the Franciscan Association of Belisario told us that our project for building sustainable sceptic tanks in rural communities next to the State Park Serra do Brigadeiro had been aproved for a church's grant. It will be a great chance to improve the life quality of rural communities living by the park's mountain range, protect their water and biodiversity resources and also work with strategic local communities.

As you can see, we ve been keeping our hands busy, working hard with the surrounding communities to make sure we have the maximum positive  impact with the resources available. Still, none of this would be real without the support of our friends and collaborators from GlobalGiving, our first succesfull partnership. It was your donation that initiated our "Forest $ Water" project when all we had was a problem with our springs drying up and a 1983 motorbike. 

We invite you to celebrate our acomplishments with us!
