A country of everlasting spring

Guatemala: a country known for its colourful Mayan culture, its serene landscapes, deep rainforests and rich biodiversity. Together with El Salvador and Honduras (amongst others), the country shares an ecological hotspot of Central America – the Trifinio region is ecologically unique, and considered one of the world’s biodiversity hotspots. Amongst others, it presents the water reserve for thousands of people. In the early 90s it became part of a regional development plan, Plan Trifinio, to protect the rich flora and fauna. 670,000 people call this region their home.

Coffee is the main source of income in Trifinio, accounting for around 70% of the population’s earnings; approximately 7,000 families in the region directly depend on coffee for a living. In addition, farms play a key role in environmental protection. Forests cover enormous areas and provide important environmental services. The soil naturally filters rainwater, and the trees protect the ground from erosion and are home to various species of animals and plants. Coffee farms serve as buffer zones around the natural rainforest, providing a smooth transition between protected and intensively used areas.

We are especially devoted to this area, and therefore contribute to the implementation of the Trifinio Regional Program with its special component “Generations”. Click on the project description linked below to read more!
