The giving back program

Ayampe Paz Verde foundation has a reforestation and education program called the Coconut Education Program. Pata Sudaka believes that it is very important to give back to the land that has given so much. So, to give back to the local community and to enjoy the love of the simple life with them, Pata Sudaka helps the organization that takes care of the reforestation in Ayampe.

Pata Sudaka gives back to this land by offering you the opportunity to join planting endemic plants in the town. One of these endemic plants is a very special variety of coconut palm that only grows 3 meters that make it very easy to grab a coconut. However, the most important thing is helping educate future generations to understand the importance of nature and how to make it thrive.
