Its purpose is to reduce poverty and malnutrition, improve the economic situation of poor families living off subsistence agriculture, promote self-sufficiency, reforest streams and riverbanks, protect the ancestral lands of this marginalized ethnic group, and protect the environment and promote bio-diversity.

Solution

Reforestation of a wild vine, called balaire; Training on how to grow balaire; High school students of the town of Limon are taught to reforest degraded beaches; Workshops on assisting people in the commercialization of their crop

Long-Term Impact
