One of the sites under consideration is the Mata Atlantica (Coastal Forest)
area in the Southern Cone of the State of Bahia. This is a place where local
poor communities are struggling to gain access to land via articulated
political effort. There are over a dozen officialy recognized Land Reform
Settlemnts in this region, and the former landless peasants are willing now
to bring up efforts to save the remnants of this unique patch of
rich-biodiversity-holding forest, as well as to secure their access to land
by changing the situation of Land Tenure in that area.

We have been recently contacted by leaders of these communities seeking help
with the various projects they deem vital. These projects will include
programs on Reforestation, Youth Development, Education and Training, as
well as Ecological Projects.

     modeled

     for granted in Western countries, will not be present

-Crossroads Volunteers go to Africa & Brazil NOT to impose their own
