In the Amazon jungle, the appearance of covid-19 is having a devastating effect on the guardians of our planet's vital organ. 


That Eja Nation

The Ese Eja Nation has been in charge of caring for and preserving our forests for generations, they are one of the last existing communities that belong to that Amazonian ethnic group and are currently fighting for their survival in the face of the pandemic caused by COVID 19.

At the beginning of the last century, the Ese eja nation had an estimated population of 10,000 inhabitants, now we only have 1,000 left distributed in three communities in Peru. The Ese eja present a unique language, with an ancestral culture and deep knowledge of the forest that for the most part resides in the minds of the grandparents.


For many years the Ese Eja brothers
have protected the tropical forests, now is the time to protect them.


What is the   Problem ?

In the communities of Palma Real, Sonene and Infierno, the pandemic has advanced faster because for decades its inhabitants have been abandoned, they do not have basic rights such as health and access to basic services.

The result of this neglect is little or no guidance on how to prevent the spread of COVID-19, and those who become infected suffer from the poor or no medical care they receive.


It's time to show our brothers and sisters that they are not alone

together we are stronger, 
together we take care of ourselves,  
together we will get through

How will   Help ?

With your support and donation we will be able to reach 343 families from the communities of Palma Real, Infierno and Sonene, in the region of Madre de Dios, Peru.

One of the most remote and biodiverse regions of the world, it's a place where countless scientists, explorers, and adventurers have traveled to in order to discover what lies within it and to test what they're made of.

Madre de Dios, the most degraded region in the Amazon rainforest.

The Madre de Dios region comprises the sector with the biggest degradation caused by the informal extraction of gold from the entire Amazon rainforest

In addition to this negative impact on the environment, these illegal practices exploit children (especially girls).



In Tambopata, the presence of 632 species of birds, 1,200 of butterflies, 103 of amphibians, 180 of fish, 169 of mammals and 103 of reptiles has been reported. Inside you will find healthy habitats for the recovery and refuge of endangered populations of species such as the river wolf, the otter and felines such as the yaguarundi, the puma, the jaguar, the ocelot or tigrillo and the margay. As for the birds, they include, in addition to the macaw, the harpy eagle, crested eagle, common paujil, unicorn paujil and carunculado paujil.

The Project

It is a project that seeks to work with bamboo as an innovative resource for the conservation of the Amazon rainforest where it involves children and adolescents in this process. The Children Bamboo Rainforest will be a healthy and safe space to promote knowledge and conservation of bamboo and its natural environment and ecosystem (flora and fauna).

The Children Bamboo Rainforest belongs to the Children's Land Network of ANIA  (Association for Children and their Environment), which adds its experience to the conservation of the rainforest of this region. Our mission is to reduce deforestation in the Amazon region through the education of proper bamboo management practices in schools, communities and private companies.

Our project won one of the Ned Jaquith Foundation Grants for 2018/2019

Why Bamboo?

For centuries bamboo has played an indispensable role in the daily life of millions of people around the world. Recently it has gained an increasing importance worldwide as a substitution for timber and for a wide range of other innovative products and potentials.

Bamboo is a vital resource for mankind. Its wide distribution throughout the world overlaps with billions of people, animals, and invertebrates who depend on it as a daily essential. With thousands of uses, as food, clothing, paper, fiber, shelter, and inspiration, bamboo has traditionally contributed to the multiple physical requirements and spiritual needs of mankind. 


Fast Growth

The growth range of some bamboo plants can reach up to almost one meter per day


CO2 absorption


Well managed bamboo forests can absorb significantly more carbon than forest areas of similar trees.


Sustainable Forest Management


Bamboo restores degraded lands and protects forests. It also helps regulate the flow of water and protects against soil erosion.


Properties and uses


Depending on the type of Bamboo can be used as raw material for a variety of products such as: Food, Textiles, Furniture, Building Materials ... etc.

Bamboo is better because it is an eco-friendly, highly renewable resource.


Sustainably managed bamboo plantations can stimulate social and economic development, and serve important ecological and biological functions to improve Planet Earth.


The Workshop


The Amazon Bamboo Workshop is an international event that takes place annually and aims to publicize the multiple benefits of Bamboo and its potential for sustainable development in Peru, specifically in Madre de Dios, as well as being a meeting point where Various actors working with this resource exchange scientific and technological knowledge.

All the money obtained in this event serves as a fundraiser for the Children Bamboo Rainforest project.
