Helping to build a better world
We tell you what our agreement with the NGO Eden Reforestation Projects consists of and what are our reasons for doing it in Mozambique
Mozambique is the 4th poorest countryin the world, suffering from an armed conflict that has displaced more than 500,000 people from their homes and in 2019 was ravaged by Cyclone Idai causing huge floods and hundreds of deaths, and that 9 million people lost their homes and livelihoods.
With few options to support their families, many of these impoverished communities were forced to destroy their local environment in order to survive, cutting down their trees for construction, fuel, heating and agricultural purposes, thereby causing major deforestation in the country.
When forests are cut down and not restored, the impact of deforestation is dramatic because it causes severe flooding, erosion and desertification. the long-term effects of deforestation lead to even worse environmental devastation
All these conditions have made us think that it is a country in which we can contribute our little grain of sand with this beautiful project:
1 Boat = 1 Tree
This is the slogan of the campaign, but specifically what we will do with each bottle of Castiza honey sold is that we will send a donation to Mozambique with which we will hire local people to work planting trees in their communities together with qualified personnel from the NGO Eden Reforestation Projects.
It is not just about planting a tree and letting it dry or grow, but about generating a fair and constant income so that they can also support their families.
This is a medium-term project, as the reforestationeffort progresses, healthy forests will begin to emerge and all the harmful effects of deforestation will begin to disappear.
For more information you can visit the website of the NGO Eden Projects and you can see the incredible work they do in other countries such as Nepal, Madagascar, Haiti, Indonesia …
We also leave you here a video from his Youtube channel where you can see the great positive impact that this work supposes for these communities ravaged by deforestation and poverty.
