Many people identify Brazil as a sunny country, with beautiful beaches, crystal clear sea, carnival, samba, and big cities, but the real face of Brazil is not this.
Brazil is a country split in half, with favelas, impoverished neighborhoods, extremely wealthy people and a vast Atlantic forest, which offers shelter to 70% of the population.
Unfortunately, this forest is in grave danger due to degradation, pollution and wild deforestation to obtain new land to be cultivated or used to build new barracks.
Currently, the forest has lost 90% of its original surface, and the supply of drinking water for Rio De Janeiro and Sao Paulo is at risk.
Planting new trees is extremely important to recover the almost compromised ecosystem of this forest and offer a way out of poverty and degradation to everyone.
Our partners have chosen the Bananal area, an extremely degraded area of Sao Paulo, where they will plant new trees in collaboration with local farmers and volunteers. The objective is the recovery of the local ecosystem and to promote environmental education from schools, with individual lessons.
We have selected 80 native species of trees to plant, and we will do it through a scrupulous rotation method to allow each species to adapt in the new environment in the best way.
Project supporters will receive a certificate and daily updates. A single tree will change the lives of many people. Do the right thing, and give them the opportunity to live a better life.
