Conservation through Poverty Alleviation International’s (US 501(c)3) mission it to implement integrated, enterprise systems that link the livelihoods of farm families and communities to the maintenance of natural ecosystems. With our partner, Sehatry Ny Mpamkatra Landy Ifotony, we teach farmers how to produce wild silk moth cocoons and make them into textiles for cash. Farmers earn $30/4000 cocoons and about $18/m2 for making our unique non-spun textile.
