Eden Projects works to eliminate poverty through reforestation.
They provide sustainable jobs in reforestation to local villagers in Haiti, Madagascar, Nepal and Ethiopia.
Why is this important?
"The destruction of healthy forest systems causes so many different problems. Trees provide a habitat for animals, purify water sources, control flooding and erosion and help to replenish the soil with nutrients needed for farming. When farmers can’t grow anything their farms fail and they have no option but to move to the overcrowded cities looking for work. Often they have to resort to selling themselves or their families into slavery just to survive."
