Support non-timber forestry and the many benefits it provides. These organizations engage in reforestation, education and livelihood support which all help improve our planet's health.
When you donate to a charity or nonprofit that supports non-timber forestry, you are helping to protect forests and the many benefits they provide. Forests are important for their resources, but also for the ecological services they provide. They help to regulate the climate, purify the air and water, and provide habitat for many species of plants and animals. They also provide humans with many medicines, food sources and materials that can be used for building and textiles.
By supporting recipients that promote non-timber forestry, you are helping to ensure that these important functions of forests are preserved. You are also supporting the people who depend on forests for their livelihoods. In many parts of the world, forest peoples have traditionally been some of the most marginalized and poorest people in society. Your donations via Giveabl's Donations API and plugins can help them access rights to their lands, get training in sustainable management practices, and find markets for their products.
In short, when you donate to charities or nonprofits supporting non-timber forestry, you are making an investment in both the future of forests and the people who depend on them.
