Mission

Yachana's mission is to provide community-based solutions to poverty and environmental degradation in the rain forest. The future of the tropical forest is inextricably linked to the well-being of its inhabitants. Our socially conscious tourism and training programs are simultaneously conserving the rain forest and providing opportunities in income generation, micro-finance, health, sustainability and entrepreneurism for the people of the region.
