Education is the most important topic and top task when it comes to supporting indigenous forest peoples, who are protecting our rainforests:education for those learning their ABCs on up to graduates and training in professions and activities that contribute to each family’s livelihood.
The Ecuadorian State is not only neglecting the indigenous population in the Amazon Basin, but it creates obstacles that are insurmountable, even for the brightest and most willing students.
Examples: Successful participation in an English course is required for entrance into the upper
school – but there are no English teachers in the State schools in the forest. Another requirement for the university-entrance diploma is the ability to work with a computer, but the forest communities have neither electricity nor laptops.
Here is where AMAZONICA takes action: we provide equal opportunities and support schools and students.
Your donation and our work will provide education and bring about progress for the indigenous forest peoples too.
