Take a moment to study the Nicaragua of the 21st century, and you too will realize why her story hasn’t made it to prime time TV – it’s simply too positive! A chance is all they are seeking. The people of Nicaragua are no different than you; they laugh, love, cry, and want the best for others. Unfortunately, their path hasn’t been as opportunistic, yet their desire still burns bright. What they want is the chance to prove themselves, and Precious Timber is privileged to be able to lend a hand. A core principle of the company is to “pay-it-forward” by developing, supporting, and funding sustainable community programs that provide meaningful assistance. Through partnerships with local service providers, Precious Timber. and its clients bring hope and direct help to a wide variety of local people.
Every private hardwood owner we welcome into the Precious Timber family brings much more to the local community than simply hardwood ownership. Whenever a client purchases their own timberland they generate the following:
- One full-time plantation job
- Five seasonal plantation jobs
- Ten hand-made hardwood school chairs for a local school dedicated in the clients name, a school uniform, pair of shoes, and a backpack for a child that is part of a family who cannot afford to buy them so the child does not attend school
- A donation to the local clinic earmarked for medication expenses for the elderly population
Together, we believe anything is possible, and we encourage you to visit Nicaragua and our plantations. Whether you choose to own tropical hardwoods as part of your financial portfolio or not, please consider joining us in our sustainable community projects.
