We are delighted to share and show our support for the most recent achievements from the Inga Foundation. Chorus has been a proud sponsor of the cause for the past few years, and we are dedicated to contributing to the positive work and change that the foundation is achieving.
The Inga Foundation works to help communities and farmers in Central America and beyond move away from the slash-and-burn culture that is devastating rainforests to the tried and tested alternative system that emerged from years of dedicated research- Inga Alley Cropping.
The Inga Foundation developed a revolutionary agricultural system to turn the tide of unsustainable rainforest destruction. Its mission is to also remedy the food-insecurity that is its principal cause. Here are their most recent achievements:
Land For Life Project, Honduras
The Land for Life Project is in its final year of a 10-year program supporting over 400 families in Honduras, to give up the practice of slash and burn and switch to sustainable agriculture, improving their food security and livelihoods in the process.
The Chaillu Massif, Congo
After the Amazon, the Congo Basin is the largest remaining expanse of tropical wilderness in the world. It is also one of the most threatened. The Inga Foundation is currently in the process of setting up a new project working to combat slash and burn farming in the Chaillu Massif in Congo (Brazzavile).
These are just a few of the groundbreaking projects that the Inga Foundation is currently working on. For more information visit: http://www.ingafoundation.org/
