WHY PARTNER WITH A FAMILY?
Many families in the Amazon need to extract resources from the forest in order to survive.
They cut trees down to sell the wood and then use that deforested patch to grow food. They use intensive agriculture that contaminates rivers and diminishes biodiversity.
Your support changes this system. Together, we stop destroying the natural world, and, instead, we regenerate and care for the environment.
In this new system, restoring and preserving ecosystems becomes a better way to earn a living, which inspires more families to sign their farms up for restoration and conservation.

ECOSERVICES: AN INNOVATIVE MODEL FOR INCREASING BIODIVERSITY
THE BBC VISITED OUR PROJECTS!
Learn about our story in this PODCAST and VIDEO created by the "People Fixing the World" program
"I was so happy to see the trees that I am keeping protected for the next 12 months. Thank you so much! With everything that’s going on in the world at the moment this feels like one positive action that I’m taking to help the planet. Keep up the good work and thank you for all you do."
- Natalia Acevedo
I am continuously impressed with your organization, I'm proud to support these programs. I hope it makes a difference for the environmental community as well!
- David Esopi
A family in Stockholm, far away from the rainforest, creates real and long-lasting impact by partnering with a family that lives in the forest, but doesn't have the funds to take care of it properly.
One family buys the eco-services that the other family offers and then receives a report and photos of those eco-services. The other family receives funds that help educate and feed their children, and uses their time and knowledge to help grow the forest back.
This union brings a sense of agency to both families and a palpable increase in biodiversity to the ecosystem that they are restoring together. This is a great example of actions that have a triple impact: social, economic and environmental, and a model that encourages us humans to turn our destructive ways around: quickly and effectively.
PARTNERSHIPS WITH FAMILIES THAT CREATE DEEP CHANGES
HUMANS FOR ABUNDANCE is a social enterprise that connects people with the desire to give back to nature with restorers that can carry out these services for the environment, like indigenous communities in the Amazon and others in positions of socio-economic disadvantage.
Our work focuses on selling a service: the act itself of restoring or conserving ecosystems. This is similar to paying someone to fix your car or take care of your garden, except this service is taking care of our collective home, our shared planet. Additionally, our model requires a minimal investment into administration, meaning almost all money raised goes to the restoration and to the families that take care of their land.
This model spreads to more communities as more people join to partner with them. By not separating social justice from environmental justice, we create incentives for tackling global warming and stopping habitat destruction.
We invite you to be part of this and join us in this movement to heal our planet.
