Poverty and dependence on imports
Nicaragua is the second poorest country in Latin America. Nearly 70% of the population in the rural areas are affected by poverty. Unlike most European countries, 95% of all Nicaraguans use firewood for cooking. The country's energy industry mainly relies on imported crude oil. It is therefore even more important that the country's economy receives a boost and that new jobs are created. New and above all long-term income streams can thereby be generated, which will result in a significant improvement of the people's quality of life.
Reculativation as a way of helping people to help themselves - and benefiting nature at the same time
The land which belongs to the family Hernándes Lopez is being recultivated with the help of the Greenfinity Foundation by reforesting a mixed forest of about 1,000 trees. Aside from timber species such as lead tree, saman and mandagual, fruit trees are also being planted to help generate an additional source of income for the people. The trees supply the inhabitants of the region with firewood as well as wood and fruits for sale. The people can use the money generated therefrom to purchase new agricultural tools and thereby greatly increase their quality of life.
Creating awareness for environmental issues
Thanks to the CFF's commitment and the amazing collaboration with the population, awareness for the use of forests for people, animals and plants can be built.
