Based in Medellin, our partner AMICHOCO is devoted to the sustainable use of natural resources and the life quality enhancement of the people of the Bio-geographic Choco region. The Choco Bioregion is a world reservoir of biodiversity which runs from Panama to Ecuador, and from the Pacific Ocean to the Andean mountain range. Our partner, AMICHOCO, has a two-fold mission which is: to communicate the natural wealth of this bio-diverse hotspot, and to create awareness about increased poverty levels and marginalization of its inhabitants. For over ten years, our partner has been working in 3 main areas which include:
* Fair and Green markets
* Communication and environmental education
* Capacity Building
