WE'RE GROWING MORE TREES DESPITE the PANDEMIC
We are laser focused on building conservation leadership capacity, without which significant eco-restoration is not possible. To realize the vision of transforming degraded landscapes to forests and wetlands, Acción Andina is welcoming a new generation of leaders, responsive to their communities like our current leaders, who have distributed food and supplies to families in need during the pandemic.
All the great work to restore our lost forests is possible by practicing three Incan principles: The Ayni, the Minka and the Mita – a deep sense of working together. Today I help you, and tomorrow you help me. And not just person to person or community to community, it is among the entire people. These ancestral practices apply to all of us, not just those of us of Incan descent. We are convinced that only through large-scale reforestation campaigns, working closely together for the common good, can we fight the effects of Climate Change.
