Over the last six months, we have been saddened to watch thousands of families make the impossible decision to leave their homes, in search of a better life. We recognize that many of the reasons people migrate are not always based on choice. Whether a family is forced to flee their native country from a lack of economic opportunity or environmental and political challenges, it is never an easy decision.
That is why this summer, we want you to be a part of something transformational with us. Thanks to an anonymous donor, we have a $40,000 match in effect until July 31st that will support Honduran families living near the Montecillos Biological Reserve with clean cookstoves, tree nurseries, farmer training, water storage, and more.
We don’t believe in uni-dimensional solutions to multi-dimensional problems. With local leaders at the forefront, we combine appropriate technology, leadership development, community-operated tree nurseries, agroforestry, and rainwater collection and storage to enable communities to be resilient in the face of climate change—equipped with the tools, know-how, and confidence to keep their families thriving, and not just surviving.
Tree nurseries provide carbon sequestration, forest cover, and increase biodiversity for local communities to reap the benefits.
