Champion a Community in Conservation

Champion a Community in Conservation

Want to directly improve lives in a rural community that's helping to conserve the Peruvian Amazon? Then head over to Indiegogo and support one of four projects that are helping both the environment and people in Peru's Madre de Dios region.

The four projects below are all part of the Initiative for Conservation in the Andean Amazon (ICAA)—a USAID-supported program that is bolstering environmental protection efforts in western South America. The Rainforest Alliance is working through ICAA to administer a small grants program supporting projects that have proposed green ways to create income in their communities.

The Rainforest Alliance will work with all of the projects to ensure that the grants fund sustainable livelihoods in communities in need of environmentally friendly development. So please give to one of the following projects and help people who are defending the world's greatest rainforest.
