Close to two thousand fruit and forest trees were delivered to residents of the Santa Rosa community in Sensuntepeque, Cabañas. The were planted along the sides of the main road in El Guayabo, in school centers, and in homes in the region.

The facilitator, Marvin Pineda, explained that the objective of the project was to work together with residents of Santa Rosa to improve the environmental conditions where families live.

The campaign, A Tree, A Student, A Family,was carried out in Santa Rosa with four reforestation activities-- one in the small village of La Pozona in coordination with the Divino Niño church; another in the center of Santa Rosa via The Church of Fatima; the third activity in coordination with Cristo Rey Church; and the last with the support of the Catholic School, San Francisco de Sales.

This campaign is part of the project Reducing socio-environmental vulnerability through the implementation of soil and water conservation projects, reforestation, agroforestry, and governanceexecuted by ADES, together with the Fondo de la Iniciativa para las Américas (FIAES).
