iGiveTrees has been supporting smallholder reforestation and agroforestry projects in rural Brazil since 2010. Current field partners are now collaborating, sharing best practices with one another while also teaching neighbors in their communities in the states of São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro and Goiás in Brazil. In 2023 we are adding support for an indigenous agroforestry project in the Amazonian state of Acre.
Restoring 5 hectares of degraded private lands, by planting 5,000 trees using assisted and accelerated rewilding methods could sequester 2,500 tons of CO2 over the next 20 years.
Meeting Ashinka leader Francisco Piyãko at COP25 in 2019 in front of the Brazilian Climate Action Hub, he spoke of the agroforestry work of his people in Acre, Brazil. He then presented us with a book about their projects.
At that time iGiveTrees wasn’t able to offer assistance. Now in 2023, we are preparing to offer support with the launch of the Love Forest.
