SOCIETY for the
have developed a cooperative among 10 villages as a sustainable means of
livelihood for the villagers. Eleven years ago, we set up the cooperative
to sell the local artwork here in the U.S. through ISPTR. By providing
an alternative and sustainable means of self-support, the project reduces
the impact on eco-system; people can now have chicken farms and purchase
or grow food rather than killing monkeys for food, destroying the forest
by logging, or overfishing the rivers. Now the villagers create pieces
of art from local materials in order to provide an economy for their families.
We invite you to join with us, actively participate and be part of the solution. Your support will provide the funds needed to train forest rangers and river patrols, and fund social and educational programs. Your support is greatly needed and appreciated to preserve one of the planet's most precious natural habitats: "the still pristine and primary forests of the Peruvian Amazon."
