Women empowered to save the Amazon
Chakramama is a community of native Kichwa women working together to harvest endemic vanilla orchids and repopulate the endangered Melipona bee population.
Our program will focus on educating these women on the cultivation of the vanilla orchids and training them on the colonization of our beekeeping program. This will empower the women with new skill sets and a source of sustainable income.
These financial projects are also a means to keep the Amazon vital and productive.
