There is really no other organization like the Pachamama Alliance - driven by passion to envision a just, sustainable, fulfilling world for all beings and grounded in such deep integrity and authenticity. Since volunteering at the annual luncheon last year I have participated in several events: Awakening the Dreamer symposium, Game Changer Intensive, Awakening the Dreamer facilitator training, etc. Pachamama Alliance not only offers the tools to create a better world, they empower individuals to become change makers and instill confidence that we all have a role to play in addressing huge issues like climate change. And the alliance is 95% individual donor funded, giving them even greater integrity (not being funded by corporations with special interests.)
Never have I worked with such empathetic, encouraging, and candid individuals. Every member of this organization emulates the mission created by Bill and Lynne Twist and John Perkins with their indigenous partners. The office buzzes with a hopeful and driven atmosphere--everyone has a role to play and a passion for playing it. Volunteering as an intern and table captain has been invigorating and I am now swept up in the fervor of shifting popular knowledge to understand and respect the worlds most precious natural spaces. THANK YOU PACHAMAMA ALLIANCE!
My preferred non-profit. Ever. The scope of their work, their spirit, their dedication is unprecedented.
Pachamama is all about making the voice of the unheard reach the masses; the voice of the planet, of nature, of animals, of indigenous peoples and of all those suffering silently and waiting for people to change their ways so that we all live in harmony.
The Pachamama Alliance is one of the most persistent, organized and thoughtful organizations I have worked with. They not only address the issues that matter to us most as human being with a clear and achievable vision; they also have years of experience and practical tools to assist people and communities around the world to work together. It’s been a privilege volunteering with them.
I have watched this community from afar and admired their tenacity, spirit and ability to organise without losing sight of their values. If anything - their values have evolved to be deeper and better understood by themselves. People within this charity have flourished and learnt leadership skills. They have the ability to engage others worldwide as their quest in their own country resonates with others in theirs.
Pachamama is truly a grass roots organization of people who love our Mother Earth and are working to honor and care for her around the world.
Amazing work by Sheila Blake. She is a trail blazer for this Organaization in Texas !!! Keep doing the great work of being the voice for our planet and the people who live in harmony with it.
I love this organization because it empowers people from around the world. It connects people who want to make a difference around the climate and encourages all the small steps that are taken.
Pachamama Alliance is at the forefront of true grassroots organizations whose beginnings and core aims are exquisitely targeted on core Whole Planet values.
Pachamama Alliance is an inspiring organization of highly dedicated people who are working for the planet, the Amazon Rainforest and for a better future for everyone on earth. I have been a donor for more than ten years and every month when my donation processes I am glad to be involved
Pachamama Alliance is an organization that’s partnered with indigenous leaders for the last 20 years. I’m proud to be a part of an organization relentlessly pursuing a thriving, just, and sustainable future, and to help implement our new goal to secure permanent protection of the southern basin of the Ecuadorian Amazon rainforest, which would otherwise risk destruction from oil drilling and other extractive industries.
I am moved by the work Pachamama Alliance does to bring forth a thriving, just, and sustainable world. The educational programs are incredible, and it is fantastic that the organization goes beyond a fixed curriculum to connect participants on an ongoing basis to discuss shared experiences. Those connections are powerful, and offer a very unique opportunity in the world. I am happy to support this wonderful organization!
Pachamama Alliance appeared on my Facebook page with so much serendipity. I realised the work they were doing and educating people about was my calling. The resources for the two courses I have done were awesome. They have helped me feel connected to a greater good and have helped me on my journey to help others. I look forward to being involved with this them into the future.
The Pachamama Alliance walks its talk -- its use of resources, its practices and ways of being are consistent with its purpose of creating an environmentally sustainable, socially just and spiritually fulfilling human presence on this planet.
I know it from the inside out and am happy that such an effective vehicle of love exists.
The impact the Awakening the Dreamer - Changing the Dream had on individuals in our community in the Sea to Sky Corridor of British Columbia, BC was simply profound. People from all walks demonstrated a deep connection with the materials throughout each phase & Swiamish residents touched by the event supported it through a heavy snow fall, a myriad of other conflicting events and many didn't want to leave the event afterwards, staying on to talk for hours about potential next steps. Our experience felt supported yet challenged us to work through the material as partners in the venture, inspiring a rich curiosity around each phase of the material, and we enjoyed the additional time spent Together working out the kinks [now ironed out by this highly accountable organization. Their integrity & forthrightness are a balm to the spirit & we have so much gratitude for our hearts have been blown wide by the material & intention behind it that mived through us all that day. THANK YOU FOR THIS TREASURED EXPERIENCE! We will host it again in the coming year
I look for two things in choosing nonprofits to support and found them both in the Pachama Alliance:
1) one whose purpose or mission I related to the most: while Pachamama Alliance's started with the focus on empowering indigenous people of the Amazon rainforest to preserve their lands and culture, it has broadened to educate and inspire individuals everywhere to bring forth a thriving, just and sustainable world. In plainer terms, for me, that means to be conscious as we consume, buy and use things, about what we truly value and want to leave for future generations.
2) how the nonprofit conducts itself in pursuing their mission; e.g., the leadership being paid too much, is their efficiency in getting funding to the purpose of the organization, is the focus consistently on the mission and are results being achieved.
The Pachamama Alliance fulfilled and exceeded both of these for me over the 15 years that I supported it.
