Thank you very much for your continuing support to our initiative improving the biodiversity of our rainforest. In our interaction with farmers during field visits and in providing technical assistance to them, we found out that there is a hesitancy to plant and grow trees because they need to get income in the short term. We try solving this situation by advocating the growing of vegetables together with the planting and care of trees because they can derive immediate income from the vegetable harvest. With the tree growing we focus our effort to let farmers grow trees that give fruit and provide them with immediate income. So in this case we promote the growing of mulberry for example because it grows well in the area and in 6 months farmers can already harvest fruits and make this into jam, wine and sell as fresh fruits. We convinced 12 farmers to do this system and hoping we will be able to gain more adopters. Thank you very much.
Warm greetings and thank you very much for your continuing support to our initiative in improving the biodiversity of our rainforest. This effort is huge and we are enjoining others to help us. We are also keen in engaging those who are working on carbon offset to help us with establishing seedling nursery and distributing the seedlings to our farmers so they can grow in their farms. We are very keen to engage the youth in this effort since most of them do not like farming anymore with the idea that farming is a lowly enterprise. This reporting period we are promoting the integration of food crops like vegetables in the biodiversity improvement mix because we found out that there is very little attention by farmers especially the youth in growing trees alone. Food is foremost in their minds. We were able to provide vegetable seeds and organic fertilizer to 75 farmers during this period and we will provide technical support to them as they grow their food. Again thank you very much.
Warm greetings and thank you very much for your support to our initiative rainforest biodiversity improvement project. This project assumes great significance because of the need to improve biodiversity especially in the uplands. The value of forest areas is immense not only for immediate needs of local people but also in terms of what we call nature services. This reporting period we find the need to demonstrate the growing and nurturance of native tree species compared to the growing of non-native species which studies shows is not producing good results in terms of environmental improvement. In this regard we have designated a 10-acre plot wherein we will grow and demonstrate the culture of native tree species. This is a venue for training as well as source of planting materials for nearby farmers. Hoping for your continuing support to our initiative.
Warmest greetings and thank you very much for your generous support to our initiative improving the biodiversity of our rainforest. The problem in rainforest areas is multiple and complex and we need the younger generation to also contribute in the improvement of our forest and upland zones. Thus during this reporting period, we promoted the growing and caring of trees by our younger generation by the provision of seedlings and the conduct of training among 32 of them. Thanks also to local supporters who provided help so that this project can move forward. We are very keen in advocacy work towards generating multiple support for this initiative because we realize that this is very important. Hoping for your continuing support. Thank you very much.
Warm greetings and thank you very much for your support to our initiative rainforest biodiversity improvement. Our country is at the center of much biodiversity but sadly this is destroyed by natural and human causes. People encroach the forest area which is where biodiversity is mostly concentrated and this encroachment destroys much of flora and fauna present there. The need to preserve and protect biodiversity is foremost and educating poor farmers is imperative. During this period, we start to launch the project in 3 upland villages and our focus is promoting tree growing especially valuable fruit and timber trees. We are able to distribute during this initial phase a total of 300 seedlings and inform 25 farmers who received them the proper way to grow and protect the seedlings. Thank you so much for your kindness and hoping that you will inform your friends to also support us.
