I have been volunteering with Rainforest Partnership since Aug 2009 and it has been an incredible experience! It is not every day that you come across people who are not only passionate and highly enthusiastic but are actually working towards protecting tropical rainforests. This organization has given me the chance to make a difference to the lives of people in Ecuador and Peru – the two communities they currently serve. Recognizing that the primary threat to rainforests is economic- they work hard to create sustainable economic development alternatives to deforestation. Their motto is : “Be nice! Have fun! Make a difference!” and they really do!

Niyanta, executive director, is inspiring and a great person to work for. She has such a passion for what she does it is impossible to not leave an impression. Maurine, director of operations, is one of the hardest workers I have ever met and still, somehow, maintains a positive attitude. A genuinely great person. I loved my experience here at Rainforest and cannot wait for the future of the organization.

As an intern and volunteer at Rainforest Partnership, I helped us stay up to date on international forestry policy. I also assisted in the planning and implementation of outreach events. Being involved with Rainforest Partnership is a breath of fresh air in the world of environmental NGOs. The staff and volunteers at this organization and really passionate about environmental issues, and the projects Rainforest Partnership undergoes are well-constructed and truly designed to meet particular goals. Rainforest Partnership cares about the communities it works with and protecting the rainforest.

As an intern for the past 3 months, I have learned the inner workings of the nonprofit sector. Rainforest Partnership does incredible work to both save the rainforests and create economic alternatives for the people living there. I believe in the model and the people who have been working to see its implementation. As the fundraising within the organization grows, the successes of RP will become more frequent. We are a very lean organization with approximately 90% of all funds raised going directly to projects. The hope is to both grow the model and our reach while also growing the RP staff and team members.

My name is Jordan Erdos and I am a co-founder and board member of Rainforest Partnership. When we decided to start up a new, international environmental non-profit in 2007, we knew we wanted to do things differently from the very respectable groups that are already out there. In the short time we have been around, we have already made great progress on a project in Chipaota, Peru, and have received a tremendous amount of support via in-kind contributions and pro-bono work from similar-minded citizens. Please visit our web site at http://www.rainforestpartnership.org and check us out on Facebook. It is through participation, not just contributions, that we can really work together to raise awareness about the role forests play in regulating the global climate.
