OVER THE NEXT 40 YEARS, OUR GOAL IS TO PROTECT AND RESTORE THE FOREST; AND TO FACILITATE RIBEIRINHOS PEOPLE TO TAKE THEIR SEAT AT THE TABLE OF A SUSTAINABLE GLOBAL ECONOMY.

LOCAL GOALS

We are currently supported by Members of Congress, the Mayor of Portel and the Education Secretary in Pará, Brazil, who assist us with materials, resources and transportation. Furthermore, we have the support of five leading Professors at the Amazonian University who will provide social care, wellbeing & mental health and sex education for the people that live and work within our project boundaries.

By 2021 we are on track to secure a further 1.2 million acres of land, which will be used to extend the project activities which grow products
