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
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.
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.
In 1989 I traveled to the Achuar territory of the Amazon Rainforest in Ecuador. The Achuar had successfully kept the outside world out for all this time. I realized that I was in the presence of life in a whole different paradigm. These people are the teachers for reconnecting to the Earth (Pachamama). I could not shake that experience. After a few more trips to visit the Achuar, I found out about the formation of The Pachamama Alliance. I give my time and money to nonprofits that show the most impact for my investment (of time and money). The Pachamama Alliance is an organization with extraordinary and wide-reaching impact. Through their focus they amplify the voices of the indigenous people (currently 5 communities of people and 5 million acres) in Ecuador's rainforest such that it has had deep effects on the protection of the rainforest and even on the rewriting of their country's constitution. Also, through the Awakening the Dreamer Symposium, an educational component, a new awareness is brought to the developed world and has spread virally to over 28 countries.
This beautiful organization is a blend of ancient wisdom and modern technology. it's using the best of both worlds to teach, support, and inspire ALL of us to be the change we want to see on earth today.
