The Atlantic forests play a crucial role in the biodiversity and climate of the region and of our planet. The Mbyá’s entire existence revolves around the forest, and the way they treat it is highly sustainable. However, for quite a while now, the indigenous people have been driven out of the forest by large landowners. Your donation will help repurchase the forest, so that it stays in the Mbyá’s safe hands.
1996 saw the founding of Sagittaria, the Swiss Association for Nature Conservation in Argentina. The Association raises money for its projects by organising various activities, e. g. harp concerts in Baden.
The Asociación Impulso Solidario (AIS) emerged out of Cooperativa Ruiz de Montoya, a supporting organisation which from 1996 to 2012 sold tea and yerba mate products from farmers in the Province of Misiones/Argentina to the European market. For each kilogramme of tea sold, the organisation contributed one Swiss franc into the Solifonds fund, which supported the association’s youth as well as social projects. The AIS will continue receiving royalties from various international fair trade organisations for its Tango ice tea until the end of 2022. Since 2013, the available fund money has only been invested in purchasing forest for the Guaraní.
I'm very interested in environment protection.
