Additional Community Priorities

Rainforest is best protected when families are strong and healthy enough to defend it.

It’s no surprise that education, health and nutrition are investment priorities for our partner communities.

Education

Education can transform the future of a child, a family, and a community. No matter where our partners are in the world, the schooling of their children is a priority.

Health

Living up to 20 hours from the closest hospital puts lives at risk. In some villages, more than a third of families have lost a child. 

Additional Community Priorities Emergency Evacuations Travelling to the nearest hospital can easily cost the equivalent of hundreds of dollars from a remote village. Cool Earth provides transport for the seriously ill.
Additional Community Priorities Health Workshops Cool Earth works with local NGOs to train our partnership communities in basic sanitation and nutrition, saving lives.

Nutrition

In Peru nutrition and protein availability was identified as a priority by our community partners. In the Awajun, a household survey revealed that 32% of children were malnourished. Cool Earth has helped to expand and vary the diets of people in the communities, as well as ensuring protein is regularly available. Healthy people make for a healthy forest.
