Project presented by Envol vert

Empower women by implicating them in activities of agroforestry

Environmental protection and the prevention of climate changes

To fight against the massive deforestation of the Sierra Nevada in the Colombian Caribbean North coast (more than 200 000 trees are cut every year), Envol vert develops a project of reforestation by involving all the members of the community.

If the men are in charge of the implementation of sustainable forest systems (in particular with the plantation of the tree Noyer Maya), the women are involved in the creation of kitchen gardens (to diversify subsistence crops) and the development of economic alternatives via the transformation and the sale of agricultural products (manufacturing of jams, plant oil)

This investment of 40 families of Santa Rita de la Sierra has a triple impact: the integration of the women in the local economy, the food safety of the population and the regeneration of the biodiversity. Envol vert plans to duplicate this project in other communities of the region and to favor the exchanges between farmers of these various communities.
