Strategic Partnerships and Outreach
MEET OUR STRATEGIC PARTNERS
As part of our vision to “protect the lungs of Mother Earth" we have carefully aligned ourselves with strategic partners who are “like minded and like spirited”- organizations that have a heart to make a difference. Camino Verde has been working 10 years in reforestation of the Rosewood tree in the Peruvian Amazon Rainforest… check them out here, and learn the value of what they are doing.
Camino Verde is a US-based non-profit organization dedicated to:
Protecting and understanding biodiversity in the Peruvian Amazon.
Protecting indigenous rights, autonomy, and wisdom.
Spreading sustainable ways of life and encouraging fair, sustainable development.
Camino Verde’s work is focused in the Tambopata river basin in Madre de Dios, Peru. The nearby Tambopata Reserve is an important protected area that has been recognized as a biodiversity hot spot and is considered by some to be the most biodiverse place on Earth. Sadly, the region’s forests and rivers face increasing pressures from migratory agriculture, irresponsible lumber extraction, and reckless gold mining.
Our mission is to plant trees and encourage others to do the same.

From the New York Times

“In the battle to limit the risks of climate change, it has been clear for decades that focusing on the world’s immense tropical forests — saving the ones that are left, and perhaps letting new ones grow — is the single most promising near-term strategy.”

Willing Hearts, Helping Hands
Willing Hearts, Helping Hands has been reaching out to help those in need since 1990. Through child support programs, raising funds, sending work teams and mobilizing volunteers, Willing Hearts has been reaching out in the name of Jesus at home in United States and in areas of global need.
Willing Hearts originally began as an orphan support program, but over the years has branched out into the areas of relief, emergency response ministry, building, and development.
We have setup and/or supported outreaches in the US, Nicaragua, Haiti, and the Philippines, and have participated in rebuilding schools and orphanages, churches, and homes. But our mission is to always see people's lives instilled with new hope and purpose .
And now, we are excited to announce that we have joined in partnership with Rainforest Inc., to extend our outreach to South America and the Amazon Rainforest. Our hope there will be to reach the indigenous peoples with schools , micro business opportunities, and the love of Jesus
