Conservation, equality & child trafficking
While these do not seem related, they are all directly related to the same issue and that issue is smallholder farmer poverty.
We'd welcome to work with various NGO's, Gov. departments and non-profits, but our solutions are not about awareness and all about solving smallholder farmer poverty, which we have a solution for.
Deforestation & Poaching
The number one cause of deforestation & poaching, is smallholder farmer poverty. If you solve that issue, you solve the number one cause of both deforestation and poaching. When you have little education and your main concern is putting food on the table for your family and maybe medical care, without any understanding of climate change, $50 to kill an elephant or burn 1 hectare of rainforest is likely to be a simple choice for those people.
When we speak about equality, we're not talking about equality in the west but in developing countries and the only way to solve this, is to create economic stability in families and once that happens, without debating the right or wrong of the matter, women will have far greater equality in those societies.
Women are often the last to receive and education, so they remain vulnerable and in many countries their first job is to put food on the table for her family and in poor countries that can occupy her entire day, from farming and cooking to working on construction sites and taking care of the children. In that environment, her chances of gaining equality are very limited. But this all changed when you end smallholder farmer poverty.
In a nutshell, there is a demand for it. Men around the world profit in pleasure and in price from the exploitation of women and children. Poverty and global disparities in the rule of law are conditions in which human trafficking, like HIV/AIDS and other killers of the poor, thrives. In poorer regions of the world where education and employment opportunities are limited the most vulnerable in society -- runaways, refugees, or other displaced persons-- are the most common victims of human trafficking. People who are seeking opportunity and entry to other countries may be picked up by traffickers and misled into thinking that they will be free after being smuggled across the border. In other cases, such as armed conflict, and some trafficked humans are captured through slave raiding.
Trafficking of children often involves exploitation of the parents' extreme poverty. The latter may sell children to traffickers in order to pay off debts or gain income or they may be deceived concerning the prospects of training and a better life for their children. In West Africa, trafficked children have often lost one or both parents to the African AIDS crisis.Reporters have witnessed a rapid increase in prostitution in Cambodia, Bosnia, and Kosovo after UN and, in the case of the latter two, NATO peacekeeping forces moved in. Peacekeeping forces have been linked to trafficking and forced prostitution. Proponents of peacekeeping argue that the actions of a few should not incriminate the many participants in the mission, yet NATO and the UN have come under criticism for not taking the issue of forced prostitution linked to peacekeeping missions seriously enough.
