Dear Good Project supporters,
We are asking for your help in hosting a special Yanomami woman in the United States. She is native to the Amazon rain forest in Venezuela. Her wealth of knowledge of the ecosystem needs to be documented, shared and passed down to future generations so that we can raise awareness on protecting the Amazon rain forest. She is known around the world as Yarima.
On a 2013 expedition, Yarima requested to travel to the United States to reunite with her family. She longs to walk in a world she left over 25 years ago, embrace her children and meet her grandchildren. While her visit would captivate the hearts of millions worldwide, there is another profound significance . Yarima embodies the Amazon rain forest as she represents an age old society that lives in harmony with their environment. Her ancestral homelands are under attack from illegal gold mining, introduced diseases, and cultural loss. Just showing the world, through Yarima’s eyes, the importance of Yanomami culture can help us raise a global call to action to protect the rain forest and the people within.
Currently, we are raising funds and looking for sponsors to take part in bringing Yarima to the United States in the fall of 2018. Please support this cause by making a tax-deductible donation below.
