Dear Friend,

Warm greetings and thank you very much for supporting our initiative to provide improvement in the biodiversity here in our region. This project is very important because our flora and fauna which is indigenous here are slowly disappearing because of forest loss and unmitigated cutting of trees and hunting of wild animals. Improvement in biodiversity means healthy ecosystem and if this is lost, this is lost forever leaving us with nothing to hope for and our children will be at a loss. This reporting period we focus on providing models for farmers by integrating a lot of plants in a single system as opposed to the practice of monocropping which is very common here. The model farms that we create in remote mountains combine food crops with trees and animals taking into consideration complementarity of the components. Farmers are now realizing that indeed this kind of approach can be and should be done. We are able to establish 3 models located in 3 villages this reporting period.

Thank you so much for your generosity.

Very sincerely yours,

Dear Friend,

Warm greetings and thank you very much for your generous support to our project improving the biodiversity of our island. Mindanao is home to high-valued flora and fauna and these are fast disappearing due to the problem of massive loss especially of forest resources due to unabated logging and farming in upland slopes. Lowland people are going to the mountains in order to look for new farms to cultivate and they are contributing to forest loss when they burn forests in order to turn this into farmlands. This reporting period, we are able to provide 300 forest dwellers with 2,000 high-valued fruit and forest trees such as mango, durian, lanzones, jackfruit, mahogany and molave. 

In the coming days we will also provide technical trainings on upland farming techniques and care and management of planted trees.

Hoping for your continuing support to this project.

Very sincerely yours,

Cesario Sayre
