Afforestation and community development in the Peruvian Andes
Pachamama Raymi, a non-profit organization headquartered in Cusco, is dedicated to breaking the cycle of environmental degradation and rural poverty. The organization’s mission revolves around the improvement of living conditions and the sustainable management of natural resources for rural communities in the Peruvian Andes.
The initiative is focused on implementing reforestation practices alongside rural communities in extreme poverty. The project encompasses housing improvements, the establishment of small businesses, and the careful cultivation of trees. The planting strategy includes both pine trees and native species to enhance biodiversity and provide additional revenue streams for the communities.
Through carbon finance, Pachamama Raymi is poised to ensure long-term activities for plantation management and sustainable development, fostering a brighter future for both the people and landscapes of the Peruvian Andes.
