Asháninka

The Asháninka once lived in the heart of Peru’s Amazon rainforest. Today, the deforestation frontline has arrived on their doorstep.

Empowering the Asháninka to shield millions of acres of Amazon Rainforest

From our first village partner of Cutivireni, we’re now working with 16 Asháninka villages in Peru’s Ene Valley.

This valley is one of the world’s most at-risk areas, with illegal logging and coca destroying the forest.

By linking villages together, we’re shielding millions of acres of neighbouring forest from loggers.

WE'VE PROVEN IT WORKS

Satellite imagery shows that our Asháninka partners have lost less than 1% of their forest, compared to the regional rate of 28% - a third of the forest lost.
