People-powered projects tackle a key driver of deforestation: poverty.
Cash generation eases financial hardship. People-Powered Projects such as sustainable income generation, food security and education can help stop rainforest from becoming a lifeline.
Rainforest communities suffered climate injustices before bearing the brunt of climate breakdown. Now those who contribute the least carbon emissions suffer the most and do the most work to undo the damage.
By giving people exactly what they need to thrive in spite of these pressures, rainforest and the carbon stored in it will stay there for thousands of years to come.
People-powered projects we champion and you fund enable social and economic growth that helps communities leapfrog threats.
