Providing livelihoods and Sustainable Development to disadvantaged families in over 90 partner communities in support of the UN Paris Agreement and UN Sustainable Development Goals.
Our Heroes, 1010 highly skilled planters, restored 8000 ha of destroyed nature with 20 million new mangrove trees in 2022. With a restoration target of 10.000 ha in 2023, 25 million additional trees will be borne, a total 100 million since our first plants came to life 8 years ago. Each of the 100,000 new lives will function as an effective Carbon Mitigation Machine, continuously working free of charge around the clock, permanently storing carbon in the soil.
The wonder of nature creates HOPE
25 years from start, it is estimated that WIFs first 5 VERRA projects have mitigated over 60 million tons, more than one year’s CO2 emission by the oil and gas exporting country Norway.
Thanks to all supporters for their dedication and trust! Wishing you all a prosperous New Year with HOPE
Arne Fjørtoft, Secretary General.
