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 attending schools in rural communities of the Amazon rainforest do not have access to basic school supplies. These materials are integral to a basic education, and the lack thereof creates a significant gap in their academic progress when compared to metropolitan schools. Moreover, children raised in the rainforest too frequently are not exposed to the environment from a perspective of concern and sustainable balance, but rather through a lens of fast exploitation and fear of animals.

Solution

Providing school supplies to every student, every teacher, and every school allows children to both practice basic skills like writing, math, and reading, and also gives them artistic materials to find creative ways to express the content they learn. CONAPAC is unique in that we only work with communities who practice rainforest conservation in specific ways. We also provide teacher training workshops to 250 teachers to build excitement for familiarizing children with the rainforest ecosystem.

Long-Term Impact

By supporting the Adopt-A-School program, you are ensuring rural Peruvian children will receive a proper education, a fundamental stepping stone to pursuing a chosen professional path. Moreover, as this program includes environmental science classes, children who receive their teachers classes will be led to understand what comprises the rainforest ecosystem, and what actions lead to destruction versus conservation. As adults they will be able to make decisions that maintains nature's integrity.
