OroVerde intentionally does not employ its own staff on the ground.

There are many local initiatives that are very committed to the protection of nature. However, they often lack the necessary funds and infrasdtructure for working effectively. This is where OroVerde comes into play. We provide training and support for the planning and implementation of projects as well as for the strengthening of the institutional capacities of our local partners.
