About Nonprofit

We support small-scale subsistence farmers that are unable to provide for their families and are forced to resort to harmful slash-and-burn agriculture. We believe that environmental degradation and rural poverty are linked, so our model equips and empowers low-income farmers with the resources to implement alternatives to slash-and-burn agriculture, sustain the land for future generations of farmers, halt tropical deforestation, and build strong, self-supporting communities through agribusiness. We have impacted over 2,500 families across Central America and planted over 4 million trees, restoring 16,000 acres of forest affected by slash-and-burn.

Mission Statement

To preserve the environment by providing farming families in Central America with the training and tools to restore our planet's tropical forests while overcoming poverty.
