KHAMAMA supporting local butterfly farmers in the rainforest

Supporting Local Farmers

Butterfly farming gives local farmers a solid opportunity to make a living and improve their living standards. KHAMAMA is in close relationships with its suppliers supporting their economic growth and fostering the establishment of new, independent butterfly farms around the world.

KHAMAMA spreading education in the rainforest

Spreading Education

The key to success in butterfly farming is know-how which is why butterfly farming starts with educating the participants about the forest, plants and butterflies. For many farmers this is the first education they receive. We are very honoured to contribute to the crucial education in these regions.

 

Surveys have shown that butterfly farmers show a considerable higher level of knowledge about the importance of the rainforest. They value the forests, plants and animals and are severely against deforestation which is the key point in fighting any rainforest clearing activities.

Butterfly farming is improving colourful equality for all people

Equality

Butterfly farming is all about having the very specific know-how since each single butterfly species needs completely different farming conditions. The actual caressing for caterpillars does not require hard physical labour. Therefore, a butterfly farm can be operated by women and men, younger and older people equally. This decreases dependency from external parties and especially improves the life of women and older people in these areas.

Raising Awareness

It is only possible to protect something if you are aware of its value and beauty. The first step of protecting the rainforests is to make society aware of the precious treasures of biodiversity. Our artefacts created out of 100% sustainably sourced butterfly wings easily show the unrivalled beauty of biodiversity in the world’s rainforests.
