Support indigenous women in environmental guarding

this task:

Diwo Ambiental operates as a youth-led, non-profit, and non-governmental environmental organization committed to fostering regenerative development, addressing climate change, and enhancing community well-being. By focusing on socio-environmental issues, the organization offers nature-based solutions to communities, governments, organizations, and companies. Through strategies such as shared value, capacity building, collaboration with communities, ecosystem service valuation, and forest landscape restoration, Diwo Ambiental actively implements adaptation and mitigation measures to combat climate change.

Their specific initiative aims to restore the forests that safeguard rivers and springs in the mountains of the indigenous territory of Boruca, Costa Rica. This involves planting native trees, practicing regenerative agriculture, and promoting cultural tourism. In collaboration with 25 indigenous women and their families, along with over 100 annual volunteers who engage with the community, their project strives to continuously secure funds for tree planting and maintenance, training, salaries, and other essential resources. These ongoing efforts are vital to sustaining the community's restoration initiatives and ensuring a lasting positive impact on both the environment and the lives of those involved.

How it increases happiness

By supporting initiatives that focus on sustainable tourism, tree plantations, and the preservation of ancient cultures, donors contribute to the generation of direct economic benefits for communities, fostering employment opportunities for indigenous women and their families.

This multi-faceted approach not only enhances local livelihoods through diversified income streams but also plays a crucial role in the restoration of forests and ecosystems.

The positive ripple effects extend to the provision of fresh water, air purification, and carbon sequestration, addressing critical environmental challenges on both local and global scales.

Ultimately, donating to such a cause not only uplifts communities but also contributes to the larger mission of fostering ecological resilience and biodiversity, making a lasting impact on the well-being of people and the planet.
