Starting on 9 July, all micro-donations made through the ARRONDI program will be donated to the NGO Ishpingo for their project to combat deforestation in the Amazon with the Kichwa Indians.
Selected during the 2018 call for projects, Ishpingo will receive support from the Maisons du Monde Foundation for a period of three years.
Following the selection of six projects by the panel of experts of the Maisons du Monde Foundation, the company's employees voted for the associations to be supported by ARRONDI for the year 2018, and Ishpingo was one of them!
Ishpingo is an NGO that focuses on preserving natural resources and helps Kichwa indigenous communities manage their natural resources more sustainably.
This community lives in the Province of Napo, in the Amazon rainforest. The deforestation rate in Napo is higher than the national average, which itself is one of the highest in South America.
Faced with these challenges, Ishpingo seeks to help Kichwa populations improve their living conditions and sustainably manage their forest resources by setting up agroforestry models and creating a fair trade product chain.
The funds collected via Arrondi will make it possible to:
- Regenerate and protect the forest resource;
- Train beneficiaries in productive and organic farming;
- Build, equip and legalize the fruit processing plant;
- Develop fair trade production, processing and marketing chains for fruits from reforestation.
Starting on July 9, make a round-up at the register micro-donation at any Maisons du Monde store in France and support the Ishpingo project.
