“Eden Reforestation Projects is a 501c3 non-profit whose mission is to provide fair wage employment to impoverished villagers as agents of global forest restoration. We hire the poorest of the poor to grow, plant, and guard to maturity native species forest on a massive scale. Our “employ to plant methodology” results in a multiplication of positive socio-economic and environment measures.
“By the year 2025 our objective is to plant a minimum of 500 million trees each year and to offer hope through the employment of tens of thousands of people in countries where extreme poverty is rampant.
“By keeping our overhead costs low, we are now recognized as one of the most cost-effective reforestation projects on the planet. While our primary goal is to lift people out of extreme poverty, we have also become a model for environmental restoration and land management.”
Help to offset how your travel impacts the world. Provide more work days for impoverished people. Plant more trees!
Eden Reforestation Projects is Cruise with Barry’s chosen charity, and we donate a minimum of 250 trees every year.
