Mission Statement: 

Floresta, a Christian nonprofit organization, reverses deforestation and poverty in the world, by transforming the lives of the rural poor.

Organizational Statement of Faith: 

Discipleship occurs through the long-term relationships that are formed as the Floresta staff works with community leaders. The good news of Jesus is woven into much of what we do, but through the process of discipleship, people grow in their faith and become servant leaders in their communities.
We take what the Bible teaches and help them apply it to daily life.
