THE STORY:

AMOUNT RAISED IN PREVIOUS ROUND: $796

Ariel is a young leader from a rural community in southern Honduras and an international scholar at Mt. Hood Community College (MHCC) as part of the Scholarships for Education and Economic Development (SEED) Program. Ariel volunteers regularly in the local community doing habitat restoration, youth outreach and education, and forest management.

Ariel has the skills and knoweldge to be a change agent for his community and country. His current project is designed to develop the native plant species in his community of Agua Caliente by training 40 local families how to plant and care for 3400 mango trees by the end of August 2014, which will increase the canopy from 20% to 90%, leading to a vast reduction in the heat island effect over time.

Ariel's project not only takes on global warming at the local level, it also empowers the community to practice sustainable reforestation in the long term.
