Funding Area: Environment

Rainforest Partnership is an international non-profit organization committed to protecting and regenerating tropical rainforests. We partner with local communities in Latin America to develop sustainable livelihoods that empower and make it more valuable for them to keep their forests standing. Our model focuses on targeting specific communities facing substantial environmental threats and combines scientific analysis and economic development choices with local knowledge, culture and desires to find a sustainable economic outlet that will allow the preservation of both the communities and forests. By creating a global network—linking people to people, community to community—we act as a catalyst to create long-term economic and environmental sustainability.

Our involvement: The Marty Tomberg Charitable Fund has financially supported this organization.

 

Projects We Support

 
Kichwa Arts and Crafts Project
 
Rainforest Partnership has been working with the indigenous Amazonian Sani Isla community and the Ecuadorian NGO Conservación y Desarrollo on the “Kichwa Arts and Crafts Project.” The project’s aim is to revive the art of traditional handicrafts made with resources from the local forest. RP is working with the women of Sani Isla to help them create and market crafts as a means of earning a sustainable income and an alternative to deforestation.

Support Dates: May, 2010 – May, 2015
 
Traditional Medicinal Project

Traditional medicine plays a very important role in the Achuar culture and way of life, connecting the 45 distinct communities in the territory. Despite the Achuar community being endowed with the innate knowledge to create traditional medicines, they lacked the necessary infrastructure as well as the skills to successfully market their products and services outside of their territory.

Thus far, thanks to The Marty Tomberg Charitable Fund, the traditional medicinal center was built in the prominent Wijint community in the Achuar territory and has been given the Achuar the opportunity to train community members and exchange traditional knowledge between the different communities in their territory. The center will also provide the Achuar the critical infrastructure support to carry out activities and host patients from far-off locations. Overall this project will seek to protect both the cultural heritage of Achuar, as well as the biodiversity in the area through the creation of a socio-economic business model that will value the Achuar culture and traditional livelihood through a sustainable use of natural resources.

Support Dates: April, 2017 – ongoing
