Review for Pachamama Alliance, San Francisco, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

This is a well run social profit that is making a huge difference in both preserving the rainforest in Ecuador and empowering indigenous people to protect their ancestral territories. Additionally, The Pachamama Alliance is raising the consciousness in industrialized countries to change the thinking around environmental sustainability, social justice and spiritual fulfillment. Paul Hawken has called The Pachamama Alliance the #1 NGO in the world.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

bring an enormous amount of consciousness and awareness to our culture in a way that brings both openheartedness and urgency to the global crisis surrounding environmental sustainability, social justice and spiritual fulfillment.

Review for Pachamama Alliance, San Francisco, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

This organization is lean and mean that is to say it has a very big outreach on a small budget. Offers Awakening the Dreamer Symposium, Rainforest trips plus much more. Generating leading edge communications that ties together issues of the environment, social justice and spiritual fulfillment. Has created a powerful relationship with the Achuar community in Ecuador and has helped protect millions of acres of rainforest.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

becoming more aware of many global issues and transforming my own life in the process.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

very bright, dedicated people.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

find new ways to transform our culture through very powerful communications and media.
