derma e® Builds Hope in Paraguay

derma e® Natural Bodycare, a pioneer in formulating cutting-edge effective natural skincare products, is pleased to announce that with their continuing efforts to touch lives globally through The Paraguay Project, they have made a positive impact on the biological and environmental conditions in Paraguay. Additionally, donations from the company helped build a nursing school with full accreditation from the Paraguayan government.

The Paraguay Project is a three-tiered charitable program supporting the people, rainforest and land of Paraguay. derma e® purchases beautiful, hand-crafted Spiderweb Lace at a fair market price directly from co-ops in Paraguay, sells them to US boutiques and online, and donates full profits as well as a percentage of all product sales to three non-governmental organizations: Guyra Paraguay, Clyde E. Bay Foundation and GlobaI Infancia.

In 2009, Guyra Paraguay made significant progress in working to protect the environment as a way to help improve the quality of life for Paraguayans and assure that there are resources for future generations. The organization focuses on biological monitoring of bird species, a variety of conservation projects, scientific research and environmental education campaigns, as well as sustainable development in their quest to defend and protect the bio-diversity of Paraguay.

In 2008, through derma e®’s donations to the Clyde E. Bay Foundation, this organization built a nursing school in Paraguay with full accreditation from the Paraguayan government. The Clyde E. Bay Foundation is an organization that helps poor rural young women and men get an education and earn a living wage. Also in 2008, Global Infancia strengthened areas of administration, resources and communication in order to continue to provide development and educational programs that work towards protecting the rights of children and adolescents in Paraguay.
