Fundacion DIA is an organization based in Leon, North West-Nicaragua. Since its founding in 2005, the organization has initiated several projects around Leon, in collaboration with the Municipality of Utrecht (Netherlands) and ProClimate (Netherlands). It all started with the reforestation project “Sustainable Forest Plantations” project, initiated in 2008. This project was Goldstandard certified in 2014 and is currently in the upscaling phase. Since then, Fundacion DIA has been gradually expanding its activities into other themes such as the introduction of apiculture (bee keeping) and the production of fine flavour cocoa and moringa with smallholder producers. A precondition that Fundacion DIA sets for its activities is that they not only must be sustainable from an ecological perspective, but also from a financial perspective.
