How will your support help?
BrazilFoundation and Conservation International (CI-Brasil) are joining forces in a global movement to mobilize resources and offer humanitarian support to the traditional dwellers of the Brazilian Amazon.
The coronavirus pandemic has brought Brazil's profound social inequalities into bold relief. Because of its vast territory navigable only by river, the Amazon people are extremely vulnerable and cannot access even basic health services. But, there is a lot that we can do!
Your donation will reach thousands of vulnerable families and, in the long-term, support traditional Amazon dwellers to protect biodiversity, local food supply and livelihoods. The campaign is already off to a strong start, thanks to a generous donation of US$ 20,000 from BTG-Pactual.
Amazonia Sempre funds will support socio-environmental organizations to coordinate with indigenous, quilombola and riverside communities to combat the immediate effects of COVID-19 and to boost socioeconomic development in tandem with nature conservancy. BrazilFoundation and CI-Brasil will select for support organizations and initiatives that have credibility in their own territories.
BrazilFoundation is a leader in philanthropy in Brazil. We connect individuals and organizations that promote social change with organizations that amplify social justice and access to opportunities. We have 20 years of accumulated expertise in strategic philanthropy to advance sustainable, equitable development in Brazil.
