Pachamama Alliance is beautifully and actively increasing awareness in the general public, as well as facilitating great and positive change for the indigenous people, the ecology, and greater planet as a whole! I am proud to be a follower! I am relieved a group like this exists and is working on the behalf of us all! Thank Pachamama Alliance! Keep up the good work! Sandy
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.
Pachamama Alliance is, in so many ways, the answer to the question I had long been asking: is there a single non-profit organization that resonates with my values and my Vision that I can align my life with? Last year, I realized that I was a member of numerous organizations that were all doing good work on the whole, but that I was doing little of that work myself. Though each organization had meaning for me, only Pachamama Alliance connected with me in a holistic, affirming, fully empowering way. It took a wake up call (literally) from a friend in Brazil to remind me what a jewel of the Amazon and what a great hope for the World the Pachamama Alliance is. And now I am all-in! I love Pachamama Alliance and the great colorful hope this organization brings to the World!
I first volunteered 45 years ago, and participated in my first political campaign 40 years ago. It wasn't until I connected with Pachamama Alliance two years ago I finally found a social enterprise that offered not just opportunities to serve and to do good, but also education in effective social and political change grounded in best practices from both ancient indigenous and contemporary wisdom teachings; support for building and sustaining local, engaged "pro-activist" community; and training and empowerment for individual volunteers to carry the alliance's message of environmental sustainability, social justice, and spiritual fulfillment to others around the world. I tear up thinking how long I've felt alone and isolated in my call to action for peace and justice, and how now with Pachamama Alliance I finally feel at home. This group is one in a million.
I have been aware of the Pachamama Alliance's great and important work for years. Finally, recently, at my company's (Powur PBC) first training and business event, I was able to experience the Pachamama Alliance's powerful, cathartic, inforamative healing, and motivational "Awaken the Dreamer" program! Loved it! I would recommend this program for anyone, from anyone walk of life. I hope to host "Awaken the Dreamer" in my town too.
I discovered Pachamama Alliance about ten years ago. They got my attention and interest for their work in promoting what is really important and essential in life to include our interconnectedness with nature. When I saw the Amazon journeys I told myself I would go with them and did in 2013. They are doing an incredible job in raising awareness and getting people's commitment in improving quality of life on this planet.
I appreciate PA and the awakening the dreamer, changing the dream symposium because of its simple yet comprehensive mission , clarity of vision and willingness to ask tough questions, find allies in unlikely places and offer inspiration to every person on the planet!
Pachamama Alliance is active on the front lines in the Amazon to support indigenous people in saving their home - the Amazon rainforest. They also develop innovative programs that reunite people with their natural origins and empower them to take action in the world. The Pachamama Alliance is an active and innovative organization making a difference for all of us on the planet.
I've been a supporter for 15 years and have never regreted it. I think they practice what they preach. The message is represented in the name.
I follow the work of Pachmama Alliance mainly through their Facebook page, which I find informative and unbiased with excellent colourful photos. This page does an excellent job of informing a wide audience about their work in supporting indigenous people and their lifestyle and their rights to continue their lives, disseminating how the knowledge and and awareness such people hold in relation to living sustainably is absolutely vital to the humanity and the planet itself. I as a human being am so grateful that Pachamama Alliance exists - and I love following their Facebook page.

Michelle, thank you so much for your review! We are so grateful that you feel this way! It is exactly what we intend for people to get out of our Facebook page and our work in general. :-)
In 2013, November, I attended a symposium during a Sustainability conference at Ananda College in Oregon state. 'Awakening the Dreamer', the symposium presented by Pachamama Alliance, was one of the top mind-altering and consciousness shifting experiences of my life. I would highly recommend to anyone concerned with the immediate and/or eventual future of this planet, to attend one of their symposiums or events, or purchase the dvd online. It's simply wonderful. I can't praise it or their work highly enough. I thank them here, and hope to be able to volunteer with them at some point. Namaste
