Review for Rainforest Partnership, Austin, TX, USA
Rainforest Partnership is unique in that it works in partnership with local and indigenous communities in the Amazon and global rainforests to make the task of deforestation mitigation successful and sustainable. As a volunteer in the summer of 2020, I was so encouraged to see that local and indigenous participation and ownership is key to Rainforest Partnership's approach in protecting the rainforest, because it creates a cohesive community that can withstand external industrial threats. In addition, by working with local and indigenous women to also contribute to generating an income, this women-run organization promotes greater rainforest and global community gender equity and women empowerment. I'm so proud to have worked with such a dynamic, inclusivity- and sustainability- minded group to combat deforestation and build an environmentally-sound future for everyone. Please consider giving them your support!
