Honduras’ deforestation crisis continues to become more complicated every day. The country’s economy is incredibly reliant on trees- 51% of its annual exports come from the sale of coffee and bananas. Despite this dependency on trees for the national economy, two things are eliminating Honduran trees at an alarming rate. Illegal logging is the most known contributing factor, accounting for 200,000 acres of razed trees every year. However, it’s the lesser-known culprit that is doing the most damage. With 70% of Hondurans living in poverty, they are cutting their own trees simply to make a living.
Our partners in Honduras use their funds to strategically plant trees in order to help local farmers. Not only do these trees provide necessary food and goods for the national economy, but they also regulate and filter water to help local farmers thrive. This model ensures that these trees will last a lifetime by giving Hondurans other options to make a living than destroying their own forests. Donate to Honduras today to help create a sustainable life for a family today!
The impact of donating trees to Honduras goes far beyond simply the environmental benefits of the trees themselves. Because our partners work with small farmers to teach them more sustainable ways of working the land in addition to planting trees in the region, your dollar directly impacts families that need help. The fact that their average income increases by 23% means that these families can afford health care, access to higher education, and expansion of their businesses in the long term. With hundreds of individual success stories happening every year, donating to Honduras gives you the chance to change the lives of so many farmers across the country.
Our Partners in Honduras have done an amazing job recognizing the problems that have lead to mass deforestation. They don’t just plant trees – they work with small farmers to give them the tools to escape poverty while keeping the land in tact. They continue to use their resources to the highest standard, and we are proud to call them our partners in Honduras.
