Through the Anse Quitor Nature Reserve Project, I now have more knowledge of endemic plants and nature.

Beneficiary and Restoration Labourer

"Through the Anse Quitor Nature Reserve Project, I now have more knowledge of endemic plants and nature. I have discovered new places throughout the island while doing seed collection such as Cascade St Louis and many other places and have also learned a lot about the different types of plant propagation in the Nursery. Through my employment in this project, I have been able to raise the standard of living of my family as there is more income, and also provide a better education for my son."

 
This project has raised my standard of living and reinforced my general knowledge. I have learned about various methods of propagation and horticulture. It has also given me information in other aspects of the environment.

Life has changed for these women and without the help of SGP, such a dream could not have been true.

"The GEF Small Grant Programme has improved the life prospect of 20 vulnerable families and has helped in empowering women who were housewives and who can now express themselves without hesitation, promote their products in a professional way and face the media for interviews. Life has changed for these women and without the help of SGP, such a dream could not have been true. We are proud to have been able to access such a model funding agency."
