Out of 338 projects submitted worldwide, Fairventures Worldwide won the category prize for “Social/Community Impact” with the 1 Million Trees Program in Borneo, Indonesia. An award that recognizes the program’s approach with the highest added value for the indigenous communities in Central Kalimantan (Borneo).
By environmental and biodiversity conservation, Fairventures‘ reforestation program improves the incomes for local people by planting fast growing timber species, fruit trees and vegetables on degraded fields. The families strengthen their income, improve their diet, make fallow land fertile again and thus can protect the remaining rainforest.
