Help Us

Donate, invest, sponsor, promote, volunteer or visit us to support our sustainable rural development and reforestation projects.  Communities here in this area of extreme poverty would be very grateful for your assistance and we will ensure that it makes a lasting difference.  How can you help?
Donate money - More efficient equipment for producing alcohol from sugar cane (as in the photo on the left) produces about 25% more, of better quality, from the same quantity of sugar cane - so the family income increases.  We don't believe in handouts, so CADO has a revolving Appropriate Technology Loan Fund which one farmer borrows, buys the new equipment and gradually repays the loan ready for the next family to borrow.  So far, 8 of the farmers have the new technology.  Over 120 others are waiting their turn.  Your donation could help them benefit from the new technology sooner.
Donate equipment - Please contact us if you have equipment to donate; we currently need a vehicle and are always grateful for donations of fuel, tree seedlings, tools and computer equipment.  We have a children's books wishlist at amazon.com at if you would like to send materials for our book club in Jilimbí - the shipping address is there in the link.
Invest in some of our larger projects to fight poverty.  We will soon publish details of how you can sponsor a tree - watch this space.  To donate, sponsor or invest, please contact us at help("at")progresoverde.org. 
Volunteer - We have a limited number of volunteer opportunities in Ecuador and sometimes a few chances to volunteer online.  Visit - You are also very welcome to visit our EcoTourism Projects, either as a tourist or a volunteer.  
Spread the word - tell your friends about us, bookmark our website, and tell people about us in your blog or social network.  
Explore our website and enjoy all the information and opportunities it offers.  Thank you!
