About Us

We are a non-profit organization, which intends to contribute to the preservation of tropical forests and to improve the living conditions of the native local population.

Tropical forests, whose largest contiguous area is located on the South American subcontinent, are vital for the climatic balance of the Earth. We believe that the social and the ecological problems of this region cannot be solved separately from each other. Therefore, we see ourselves as an environmental organization as well as an organization for development cooperation. We want to support the people of this region to build up sources of income, which on the other hand, enables them to secure their sustainable long-term survival, so that they are not forced to destroy or harm the tropical forest.
