With 12 million hectares (the equivalent of Portugal's territory), the program encompasses three municipalities and a total population of 88,000 people, including the urban population, farmers, riverine, indigenous and quilombola communities. The main economic activities developed in this territory are the collection of Brazil nuts, subsistence agriculture, fishing, logging, mining and cattle raising. Today mining is the activity that most generates income in Oriximiná and, little by little, will also be contributing to the income of Faro and the Holy Land.

The family farm production in the communities of Sapucuá Lake and Médio Trombetas have gained momentum in recent years through the company's partnership with the Rural Workers Union of Oriximiná (STRO). We make financial transfers to the STRO that enable technical support, training, consultancy for sustainable development projects, in addition to supplies and tools.

The process of regularization of the lands of the Trombetas region, in Sapucuá Lake, in Oriximiná, is an aspiration of the population of that area. Sensitive to this need, we entered into an agreement with the National Institute of Colonization and Agrarian Reform (INCRA), The Pará State Land Institute (ITERPA), the Rural Workers Union of Oriximiná (STRO) and the Association of Traditional Communities in the Area of Gleba Sapucuá (ACOMTAGS ) to conduct notary and occupational surveys. The initiative resulted in the enrollment in 2002 of 1,602 households in an area of 162,940 hectares.

Date Created: 2002
Main beneficiaries: communities of Sapucuá Lake, Batata Lake, in Oriximiná; maroon communities of the Alto Trombetas, and communities in the cities of Faro and Terra Santa.
