Your free gift when you donate $20 to: Grow Amazon artisan income & Peru rainforest trees
Donate $20 or more and you’ll receive a calabash pod tree ornament made by a Bora or Murui artisan from the Peruvian Amazon. Each ornament is etched with an original Amazon wildlife figure that doubles as a hand maraca. Choose a Mammal, Bird or Other Critter (includes bugs, frogs, and fish). CACE is empowering over 100 women artisans from six native communities to create innovative handicrafts and is assisting them to plant more trees used to make them. Our project is also training Bora men to make high quality essential oils from aromatic copal resin and rosewood tree leaves.
Selling these value-added forest products gives artisans a concrete way to provide for their families that does not degrade the rainforest. We also return a part of our craft sales to our partner communities to improve their health, education and forest conservation. Each ornament comes with the name of the artisan and their community with a link to photos of them and a video of how the ornament was made.
