Empowering Peruvian Farmers

With the perfect combination of conditions — heat and plenty of rain — trees grow fast in the Amazon Rainforest. But meaningful action in the fight against climate change has to begin at grassroots. Peruvian smallholder farmers have become trapped in a cycle of poverty, borne from a legacy of degradation and false promises of the ability of the land to sustainably support cattle and crops. Your donations are helping Plant Your Future to engage and empower these farmers to restore the Amazon Rainforest with ‘agroforestry’ – providing them with a sustainable income that reduces the threat of deforestation. Help us make more of an impact in the fight against climate change and donate today.

Planting Hope

Just £10 could help a farmer plant and nurture 5 trees on his deforested land and receive all the inputs and equipment needed to maintain them. Watch the video below to understand more about our work on the ground in the Amazon Rainforest.

 

 

 

 

“I want to bring back value to my land that has become valueless”

Plant your Future is helping subsistence Amazonian farmers transition from unsustainable agriculture to market-oriented agroforestry systems. Our work is not only about farming more sustainably but also improving livelihoods. Read more about the Farmers we are working with.

Plant Your Future farmers work with us, not for us

Read more about how we began and why building Amazonian farmers capacity in sustainable farming is important for the restoration of the Amazon Rainforest.
