Ishpingo, reforesting the Amazon rainforest
Founded in , the Ishpingo foundation is a French-Ecuadorian Non-Governmental Organization.
For more than 10 years our goals have been being : improving the social, economical and environmental living conditions of the Amazon local populations, reforesting the rainforest as well as preserving biodiversity through the development of projects using agroforestry.
Giving a sustainable nature to all the actions we undertake is our prime priority. To achieve that purpose we are involving local populations in each of our reforestation projects because only them can carry on tomorrow what we are fighting for today.

How to preserve forest resources as well as getting the maximum value out of the farmlands in Amazonia in order to tackle deforestation while ensuring decent living conditions to local populations ?
Agroforestry seems to be the best model providing a relevant answer to this issue. As a matter of facts this system allows the farmers to grow simultaneously different types of valuable resources (timber and lumber, fruits, medecinal plants, cocao, coffee, etc...) in order to preserve biodiversity which is vital for mankind and the environment.
