The Huni Kuin are the first people we collaborated with. We met chief Ninawa Pai da Mata in 2015, and he blew us away with his joy, integrity and work ethic.
We raised funds to implement an Artesian well for clean, safe water in his village, and built a Dieta Center for initiations into traditional wisdom. More recently, we financed the building of a new school and filled it with school supplies, as well as 5 houses and a new temple to accommodate the growth of this community, and to welcome visitors from afar.
