The Amazon Pueblo Project's Mission:

Our mission is to support the education of Amazonian indigenous youth to encourage sustainable business.

The Amazon Pueblo project is dedicated to helping indigenous villages of the Colombian Amazon to live sustainably through the development of socially conscious business.  The Yagua community of La Libertad is the first village in which we work.

We believe the best way for us to accomplish our mission is by helping the village students to help themselves by supporting their education and teaching them about sustainable business.

To fund-raise and simply give the people of the Amazon "things" is not a sustainable model for our organization.  We believe that the best way to promote sustainability in the village of La Libertad, and throughout the region, is through socially conscious business.  The underused human capital of the village, and region, is seeking the opportunity to work and trade.  The resources of the Amazon are great.  The government is encouraging and willing to assist with development.  The Amazon Pueblo project will help the village to go forward.
