MBF's Sustainable Development initiative promotes activities that enable local communities in and around the MBBR to achieve self-sufficiency and improve their quality of life through the adoption of ecological practices and community projects. In partnership with local organizations, we support projects that train people in the production of organic vegetables, organic fertilizers, fruit and forest trees, as well as the construction of fuel-efficient stoves and cisterns to capture rainwater.
Sample Project: Alternare - training generations of leaders
Alternare is a well-known and well-respected local organization working to promote sustainable development in their region. This MBF-supported project focuses on Alternare's innovative capacity building workshops. In 2023, 26 participatory planning workshops were held focusing on social vulnerability to climate change. These planning workshops result in community-driven projects such as the construction of fuel efficient stoves and rain-capturing cisterns, organic agriculture and other practices.
MBF is proud to partner with such a proven change-maker.
