Healthy ecosystems underpin everything that humanity needs, but 75% of our Earth is degraded. Climate Disruption, the biodiversity crisis, desertification, flooding, loss of livelihoods, poverty and hunger are directly linked to collapsing ecosystems. Humanity is degrading and depleting its most important resource: functioning natural systems. The need for addressing these crises and for a change to a resilient, regenerative and sustainable co-existence with our natural world is understood. Yet, worldwide, people feel powerless to turn the tide. In response, we are catalyzing a global movement to restore and rehabilitate our degraded ecosystems and change the way we live with nature through introducing regenerative productive systems. Ecosystem Restoration Camps ("ERC") is a global, inclusive, bottom-up movement. We catalyse action towards restoring and rehabilitating natural systems to maintain the web of life. We do this by facilitating the emergence of Camps around the world. Camps are living labs where local communities, lay people, experts and scientists come together to restore and rehabilitate degraded ecosystems. Camps empower local communities to restore their environments and livelihoods by providing them with the tools, skills, and knowledge to bring back abundance and increase their resilience. OUR VISION: We envision a fully-functional, peaceful, abundant, biologically diverse Earth brought about through cooperative efforts for the ecological restoration of degraded lands. OUR MISSION: To work together to restore ecological functionality, to build Research, Training and Innovation Centers for Ecological Restoration, to engage people in inquiry into ecological restoration, and train people in how to restore degraded lands in perpetuity. OBJECTIVES - To train people in techniques for restoring land and provide practical opportunities for people to practice new approaches to landscape restoration. - To build research, training and innovation centers to engage people in ecosystem restoration. - To manage a flow of volunteers of all ages to restore agricultural and natural ecosystems. - To increase the organic matter, carbon content and water retention capacity of the soil to stimulate large scale carbon sequestration. - To improve the livelihoods of farmers, landowners and local communities around the camps. OUR VALUES Restoring Earth positively impacts both livelihoods and communities. To ensure that our contribution to humanity is ethically sound, we have embraced a set of core values that guide the work of the Foundation: - We believe that all beings are equal and endowed with certain inalienable rights; - We recognise that without thriving ecosystems we are nothing and feel a profound obligation to preserve and restore degraded land where it may be found; - We are not self-seeking but rather committed to working together towards a collective outcome that is bigger than any individual, that benefits us all, and that benefits future generations; - We voluntarily, joyfully and with peaceful intent wish to restore basic ecological function so that all people and other living things can live together in harmony; - We willingly share our knowledge, our time, our expertise and our labour, making it as accessible as possible, knowing that we are doing the right thing; - We treat one another with respect and as equals in our shared endeavour, no matter how much or how little each of us may be able to give; - We believe in collaboration, and therefore work with organisations, experts, and local communities in partnership; - We work as a bottom-up movement, each Camp is an independent entity designed and organised according to its own local context, ensuring that the benefits are really felt by the local population; - We communicate openly and honestly celebrating our diversity, and embracing our differences without allowing these to impede progress towards our shared goal; - We act with open minds and hearts, prepared to learn new skills and methods for land restoration from those with knowledge and expertise in this area; - We strive to communicate the essence of our work to others such that together we can build a movement that restores resilient abundance to land and ecosystems that we have degraded. ERC Foundation works with an executive Board of Directors, a volunteer and financially responsible Supervisory Board and a strategic Advisory Council made by the world's leading experts in agroforestry, permaculture, regenerative farming, and ecosystem restoration. ERC is a supporting partner to the United Nations Decade on Ecosystem Restoration.

Since the project is aiming to reduce poverty and allow the food production we are also going to develop irrigation system at the farmers land to those who we will develop the vegetables gardens to enable them access easy irrigation system through trapping of flowing water and collection of dams which are around the farmers plots. The project is also going to make sure that it's develop the mission through the training and awerness rising to the farmers where by farmers are going to be trained on: Well crop rotation Well crop diversity Well crop management Agroforestry development Water harvesting and animals husbandry Through this it will provide education and learning to the farmers who will turn there behavior and applied these well method of farming without destroy the natural resources. Also through this program the project is engaging the groups like youths, local schools,land owners. Through engagement of school students the project is going to engage more than 10 schools which will touch more than 500 students to train them on how to produce seedlings and how to maintain then. The project will opening different micro nursery trees in the 10 schools for more education and learning to increase the restoration knowledge to the students and their teachers where by 1000 trees are expected to be produced in each school for more Plantations at their school surrounding and some will be taken to their home for more agroforestry plantations. Also the program is going to use 4 workshop annually and opening 10 environment and food production clubs at school and frequently debates to increase the skills and scaling up the idea of forest landscape restoration and food production. The project is also using conference with land owners, government authorities and other stakeholders who we are discussing on how to cover the problem which is covering our community. Also this is dealing with discussion with land owners on how to practice sustainable use of land during their land consumption. Also water resources conservation is the project mission where by the project is generate and contribute to the 3 water resources which has been degradated and which are dependable by farmers for their plots irrigation and their vegetables irrigation through this fact the project through the partnership with global giving is going to conserve 7 water resources which has been degradated by different calamities including allowing of livestock passing and cutting down of the natives trees that surrounding the water resources . This will be through removing of invasive speceis and plastic materials and bags at the farmers water resources to develop the irrigation system to their agricutural plots and the whole community.
