The Yonton Te Initiative is a regenerative agriculture and livestock project that promotes ecological and social development, protecting forests and the natural processes of animal and plant life. Yonton Te means “heart of a tree” in the Tsotsil language, one of the native languages of Chiapas, Mexico. It is there where this project was born and where reforestation and soil regeneration are carried out on a demonstration farm (Rancho LumHa’), as well as in the neighbouring communities.
Yonton Te seeks to save and regenerate the mountains of Chiapas, working hand in hand with neighboring communities to seek alternatives for growth and human fulfillment in their own lands. The essential combination of creating economic opportunities for local communities – especially for young people – while strengthening the transformation and action, makes Yonton Te a unique initiative worthy of encouragement.
