Founded by David Good in 2013, The Good Project is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization with a mission to  support the education, healthcare, and preservation of the Yanomami from intercultural and participatory perspectives. We share the knowledge and wisdom learned from the Yanomami, as well as other indigenous peoples, with the public to increase cross-cultural awareness, and promote the protection of indigenous rights and their ancestral lands. Direct impact projects and programs require the staff to spend time in Yanomami territory to better understand their ways of living, languages, and the impacts of exposure to other cultures. Keenly aware of the sensitive balance between supporting socioeconomic progression and preservation of traditional values and customs, The Good Project engages indigenous leaders, existing local and national NGOs and support groups with similar missions to create a community of collaboration that sets common goals and shares resources to achieve them.
