Happy Holidays from Amazon Pueblo!

Happy Holidays to all of our friends, family, and supporters of 
Amazon Pueblo!

For 2019 we are providing scholarships to 25 students in the Amazon.  We are also planning to host a kid-friendly sustainable business workshop at km 18 outside of Leticia.

On December 29 we will be going downriver to Leticia to do the school shopping

On December 24th Ben Angulo, the project director, will be flying back to Colombia to give the scholarships and to help administer the workshop.  Freddy, the director of Funmiroca (a Colombian NGO) will help us with the scholarship administration and the workshop.  Thanks Freddy!

Back to the jungle!

And on December 28th we will host a slightly-late Christmas dinner in the village.  We hope to serve 300 people this year.
