Summer Reforestation Plans for 2024 Underway!

Alternare and seven communities finished their planning process for 2024 and intend to plant approximately 40,000 trees in 36 hectares in the Monarch Butterfly Biosphere Reserve!

One of the most exciting emerging projects for 2024 is the pest and disease prevention program that Alternare is developing in collaboration with the Reserve's Directorate. This project trains people in techniques to apply products that repel insects such as bark beetles to trees and monitor them.

During this first trimester, four workshops to build rain-capturing cisterns were held with the participation of 15 women and 17 men. Four cisterns were built, benefiting 30 families. One of the women told us, “With water running scarce because of the droughts, at least we can capture the little rain that falls, to have enough water to cover our basic needs.”

Additionally, other workshops to learn about the perceptions to the impacts of climate change among women are being developed. 

The year is starting with lots of exciting projects. MBF is happy to continue supporting Alternare in these empowering initiatives that raise awareness among local communities. We could not do this without your invaluable support!

 THANK YOU!!
