Images from our work with the Kichwa and Yine communities of the Madre de Dios region in the SE Peruvian Amazon. We are working with these communities by supporting and developing a sustainable module for the fair trade of their traditional arts. The aim is for the elders to pass down their artistic knowledge to the younger generation, creating an alternative source of income for the village, away from the unsustainable mining and deforestation in the region which the youth are often drawn to.
Thank you to Novalis for being part of the project.
