Working with indigenous communities in Cerro de Pasco region of Peru located in the Amazon forest, the project will support a training for sustainable life style Practices and the provision of the sustainable and efficient rural electrification service for more than 40 low-income rural household users. This will lead to a partial transition from the traditional method, to one that takes advantage of the heat of the sun. In this way CO2 emissions, deforestation and CO2 footprint are reduced.

Objectives

Working with indigenous communities in Cerro de Pasco region of Peru, the project will support the provision of the sustainable and efficient rural electrification service for more than 40 low-income rural household users. This will lead to a partial transition from the traditional method, to one that takes advantage of the heat of the sun. In this way CO2 emissions, deforestation and CO2 footprint are reduced. In addition, the training program will support more than 60 indigenous people including women, who constitute more than half of the beneficiaries.
This project would contribute with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) proposed by United Nations and adopted by the Peruvian government especially with the following goals:
Goal 1: No poverty, Indigenous populations in Peruvian amazon regions live with an average income of $ 1.25 dollars per day. The Project will help to build technical capacities on the development of sustainable source of incomes with activities related to agriculture and raising farm animals.

Next steps and how to get involved

Ancestral Native communities are genuine guardians of Amazonian natural forests and the ecosystems in it, however many of these communities live below the line of poverty and lack of basic utilities such as electricity and sanitary services. “Oneplanet” project helps us to meet some of these basic needs by promoting a sustainable lifestyle. Therefore, if we improve the living condition of native communities then they will be more engaged with forest surveillance and protection, this can prevent CO2 emission from deforestation, as a result global warming can be mitigated and many ecosystems will be safe from destruction.
Fondo Verde works together with native communities in the Peruvian amazon forest in order to build capacities and fight against forest deforestation.
Any support from stakeholders is welcome their support is very important in our mission to save the Amazon forest, the ecosystems, the people and the planet.
