Why we welcome volunteers:

Introduction.

South Bahia was a source of riches until the finish of the eighties of the previous decennium. The cocoa development in this fertile territory made many big landowners very rich. Small farmers, as well, had a decent existence with adequate financing to develop their territory. Then a threatening fungus showed up and annihilated the vast majority of the cocoa cultures.

Today.

A large number of small cacao farmers are presently attempting to reestablish the old estates. This requires extraordinary devotion and particularly a ton of assistance since they live under marginal conditions. Small farmers are quickly affected by negative climatic impacts. A poor harvest, due to excessively dry or too wet conditions isn’t exceptional.

Agroforestry.

Reestablishing original afforestation and the modernizing of cocoa plantations is a severe need. Too often small farmers are driven by poverty to deforestation to make new fertile land accessible. Small farmers need assistance.

Farm accommodation.

From the past times, there is often living space for farm workers available. Here and there in bad shape, yet this still offers possibilities. By making the buildings accessible invaluable support can be gotten. The quantity of idealists for nature protection is developing steadily. We urgently need their assistance and are massively pleased if that is conceivable without causing additional expenses for us. Their contribution to cover the typical cost for living and a recreation program makes a significant difference for us.

We welcome volunteers for a week to several weeks. Do not hesitate to ask questions and share your wishes.
