Summary

Adopting a school in a rural community in the Peruvian Amazon ensures children will receive a year's worth of school supplies, and they will be thoroughly involved in education programs that lead them to love and care for the rainforest. We believe that education leads to concern. As the children in Loreto, Peru grow up understanding the cycle of the ecosystem of the rainforest, they will be eventually make decisions as adults that consider the rainforest's well being.

Challenge

Children in rural communities of the Amazon rainforest do not have access to basic school supplies, and the quality of environmental education is not inspiring. This creates a significant gap in academic progress when compared to metropolitan areas, prevents pursuing professional paths, and misses an opportunity to establish rainforest conservation practices. Many rural people lack concern for sustainable balance, preferring fast exploitation of trees and wildlife.

Solution

Providing school supplies to 3000 students, 250 teachers, and the classrooms allows building essential skills in writing, math, reading, and arts. CONAPAC does this in 55 communities whose parents practice rainforest conservation in specific ways. We also prepare youth to be stewards of the rainforest with fun, outdoor learning classes that involve citizen science. This is done by annually training 250 teachers to inspire rainforest awareness and care, in coordination with ministry of education.

Long-Term Impact

Adopting a school ensures children in rural Peru will receive a proper education, the critical base for to pursuing a chosen professional path. Inspiring children to understand and care for the rainforest ecosystem results in a healthy Amazon rather than ongoing rainforest destruction. As adults they will be able to make decisions that maintain nature's integrity, and find ways that jointly serve social development and environmental wellbeing.
