Invite us to tell you the ‘FairYtales of Madagascar’ and with every show your students will support a planting of 50 more trees in Madagascar.
We are also preparing for the release of our book – the “FairYtales of Madagascar” picture book; Every sold book will contribute to planting 10 trees in Madagascar. Very soon more about it.
We are also preparing a music compilation featuring big names in popular music from Indonesia to Madagascar, France and wider European region. Every sold compilation will plant 5 trees more in Madagascar. Very soon more about it.
Eden Reforestation is a non-profit organisation that has been helping the local populace with planting trees for over 10 years in their attempt to restore the catastrophic situation of forest loss on Madagascar. Only 10 % of the once moderately overgrown island remains forested. In comparison, in Slovenia an impressive 60 % of the surface area is covered by forest.
The catastrophic disappearance of the forest is present throughout the Southern hemisphere and the situation demonstrates a severe risk to all of us, as we are all ‘in the same boat’.
The causes of forest decimation on Madagascar are varied: from capitalist and colonialist exploitation (furniture industry, mining, precious timbers for the music industry, pharmaceutical industry, agriculture – coffee beans, vanilla, tropical fruit, etc.) to fast-rising population and traditional slash-and-burn farming. From an ethical standpoint, the former set of causes are incomparably graver in their effects to those caused by the increasingly impoverished local population in their fight for survival.
HOW DO WE KNOW WE’VE CONTRIBUTED?
Once a month we make an account of the number of the shows we have given (the ‘FairYtales’), the number of picture books and compilations we sold. Then we donate the funds to a non-government organisation Eden Reforestation and adjust the tree counter which will be found on the front page of our website ‘DREVO sozvočja’ ( ‘Hira Tree’)
HOW CAN WE ASSURE THAT THE FINANCIAL ASSETS HAVE BEEN DONATED?
- WE HOPE YOU SEE OUR GOALS AND ACTIVITIES AS GENUINE AND TRUST US THAT WHAT WE’RE DOING IS FOR THE GOOD OF THE PEOPLE AND THE FORESTS OF MADAGASCAR.
- BECAUSE WE KNOW TRUST NEEDS TO BE GAINED, WE WILL POST UPDATES ON OUR DEPOSITS TO EDEN REFORESTATION EVERY MONTH. There you will be able to see the completely transparent and ongoing activities in our support of the people and forests of Madagascar.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR TRUST!
