Dr. Kinari Webb founded Health In Harmony in 2005 to help illegal loggers in the Borneo rainforest stop poaching trees while improving their income and health. In a remarkable story, she and her team have reduced the number of families that rely on illegal logging for a living by 88 percent while virtually eliminating childhood deaths in the region. Dr. Webb has created chainsaw-buying programs to help illegal loggers move to sustainable practices and, during the organization’s time in Borneo, has seen local incomes rise by 300 percent as families find better options for earning a livelihood.
