Our team at Dawson Velma is committed to being a business that makes not only excellent products but also does good for the world. Our project was based on the principles of HOPE – Strength – Courage. We know how hard it can be to ask for help. It can take a lifetime to be heard and be able to speak about our feelings. We see the environment and mental health as two areas that have so much in common. Both are silently impacting our planet. It is never too late to make a difference. Join us at Dawson Velma and start the conversation. It is our TIME for action.
The innocence project

Yarra Yarra Biodiversity Corridor
Making positive social, environmental and economic change.
Since the launch of the Yarra Yarra Biodiversity Corridor project in 2008, 30 million trees and shrubs have been planted restoring over 13,000 hectares of land.
This reforestation project aims to re-establish the natural landscape of a 200km corridor in the northern wheatbelt of Southwest Australia.
The Madre de Dios Amazon REDD Project consists of 100.000 hectares of rainforest, located in the Peruvian Amazon, only 400 km from the historic sanctuary of Machu Picchu, the “Lost City of the Incas”.
The area is located less than 30 km to the side of the new inter-oceanic road that has recently united Brazil with Peru. The project is within the region that belongs to the Ecological Corridor Vilcabamba Amboró, one of the world’s greatest biodiversity hotspots.
