Your Impact
in the Asháninka

Last year, you did something extraordinary. You helped local people in Peru protect their rainforest.

Without your support, the loggers that were at their doorstep would have cleared their land. But thanks to you, their forest is safe.

That’s not the best bit. By investing in Cool Earth’s award-winning model, your donation is changing lives as well as keeping trees standing.

Here is a snapshot of what your donation last Spring is now helping the Asháninka to achieve.

Your impact in numbers



You’ve made a village strong enough to protect their forest

The forest is safe only when there’s a village strong and healthy enough to protect it. This year you’ve helped to train and equip 18 community health promoters.

Your support could not be more important. A child born in our Asháninka Project was ten times less likely to reach their first birthday than if they were born in the UK. And the least remote village is still a ten-hour journey away from the nearest doctor.

But with basic training, and some simple equipment, lives are being saved. Thanks to you the Asháninka are now strong enough to defend their home.

Your Impact </br> in the Asháninka
“We need to protect the forest because we need to breath fresh air, because the trees help keep the streams and rivers full of water, because it keeps many animals alive, because it provides us with tools and materials as well as medicines, because it is what gives us life.”
Julián Quispe Carbólico, Tsimi President, Cutivreni, Asháninka Partnership, Peru

You’ve helped out-price forest destruction

Your donation supported the development of income streams from forest produce like coffee and cacao. The aim is that our partner villages earn more from these crops than they would do from loggers, or from Cool Earth, and so become strong and self-sufficient.

Last year, 2.4 tonnes of cacao and half of tonne of coffee were exported to the UK direct from our Asháninka partnership. This represents a real milestone in terms of income generation. And the chocolate you helped make is pretty darn tasty, too.

 

And you've helped keep rainforest safe

Your smart thinking means that against all the odds, 150,000 acres of rainforest are safe and sound.
