Much to share with you this week from my adventures in the Amazon. I was honored to be invited to visit one of the indigenous tribes in the Rainforest in Ecuador with the Pachamama Alliance.
Pachamama Alliance has been working for more than 20 years with these kind, peaceful people, to bring awareness to those of us in the developed world how we can all work together to provide a brighter future for our families.
Before being introduced to Pachamama, I had heard random facts about the Amazon Rainforest and its people, but I was unaware how much our worlds are actually intertwined.
The Rainforest is the center of life for the planet. The Amazon River is 3,980 miles (6,400 kilometers) long, according to the U.S. National Park Service. It is the world’s largest river by volume and contains 20 percent of the Earth’s fresh water, according to the National Science Foundation.
I was invited to visit to learn more about the work that Pachamama is doing on the ground with women and their children. The gifts I received from these beautiful people with their generous ways, were greater than I can explain.
The Pachamama Alliance was created by people in many nations who work tirelessly to develop a sustainable future for us all.
