We are working in the most beautiful place in the world, the Amazon - trying to save this paradise and conserve its cultures and biodiversity. We offer transformational experiences: service-learning programs, permaculture courses, volunteering opportunities, and unusual trips for those who don't want to just visit a place but want to really understand it and contribute positively to changing our global society.

Our mission: to participate in the sustainable development and conservation of the Peruvian rainforest and its populations while providing a life-changing service-learning experience to students from the Western world. We hope to give our volunteers the tools necessary to understand the connection between our non-sustainable lifestyle and human insecurity, poverty, environmental degradation, loss of biodiversity and climate change.
