"Everybody can be great…..because anybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve You don’t have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love."
Martin Luther King, Jr.


We propose to stimulate and support environmental, social and profit-making programmes to strengthen the areas in which we will work for the short, medium and long-term. By establishing sustainable profit-making activities we will create permanent sources of employment, which combined with projects to improve health, education and conserve the environment, will improve the quality of life of the people living in these communities. To this end, we have designed various projects under these three headings including reforestation projects, crop development, the creation of health teams, environmental education, craft development and others.

It is important to point out that all the projects are initiatives, which have come from dialogue between VERDE MILENIO and the various communities we serve, taking account of their needs and aspirations. Upon consensus, the Foundation acts as a facilitator to generate the maximum benefit for each project and each community.

Currently, our principal area of operation is the Cotocachi-Cayapas Ecological Reserve, known as one of top ten biodiverse hotspots in the world.
