The problem we seek to address is the persistent rural poverty and environmental degradation in marginalized communities
Nigeria create livelihoods and sustainable businesses through reforestation.
Rural poverty affects a significant portion of the population in developing countries, with limited access to resources, low incomes, and food insecurity. Environmental degradation, including deforestation and unsustainable agricultural practices, further exacerbates the problem, compromising ecosystems and livelihoods.
The problem persists due to structural factors such as limited access to education, inadequate infrastructure, and lack of market opportunities. These forces perpetuate the cycle of poverty and hinder sustainable development in rural areas.
The problem is complex, as poverty and environmental degradation are interconnected. Poverty drives environmental exploitation, while environmental degradation, in turn, deepens poverty.
Breaking this cycle requires addressing both aspects simultaneously through holistic approaches like sustainable agriculture and alternative income generation to create lasting change.
HOW WE ARE CONNECTING THE DOTS ON POVERTY AND CLIMATE CRISIS
We carry out campaigns to create awareness, and encourage giving that will help the vulnerable people affected by these socio-economic crises be recognized and easily accessible for the needed assistance to reach them with multiple options that help them walk out of poverty and address natural ecosystem damage that negatively impacts their livelihoods.
