On may 22, 2010 Forest of Peace launched a reward scheme relating to climate protection in which everybody can take part.  Matured, the pro­ceeds of the tim­ber will be used fully for the voca­tional or higher edu­ca­tion of a child of your choice or, if For­est of Peace is entrusted to select a child, any child in need of support.

It would be a mistake to believe that the objective could be achieved without any effort.  Therefore, it is essential to have a strong partner on your side with the experience of many years in project analysis and a strong team for your support.
