Our Mission

Mothers of the Amazon is a global network of mothers protecting the Amazon Rainforest and the health of its indigenous communities through restorative community projects in the Amazon.

At Mothers of the Amazon, we believe that it is crucial to respond to the call of our children who protested last year all around the world demanding climate justice and we recognize that the most effective action towards climate defense is Rainforest defense. Today, indigenous communities who represent only 5% of the world’s population are at the forefront of the defense of our Rainforests, protecting 82% of the world’s biodiversity. To protect nature is to protect indigenous people.

The Amazon is the largest Rainforest on the planet representing 60% of the world’s Rainforests. Our mission: Be a voice for the Amazon Rainforest and protect the ones who defend it.  At Mothers of the Amazon, we support indigenous communities through restorative community  projects that aim to improve population health, restore the health of the environment, and create cultural and environmental sustainability. We respond to the specific needs, challenges,  and diseases that local communities are facing by co-creating sustainable zero waste to low impact, low tech, and low cost solutions that honor indigenous traditions.

Along with restorative community projects in the Amazon, Mothers of the Amazon, through our global network of mothers, introduces in public and private schools educational materials that foster a deep connection with the forest and its communities. Our educational programs teach children of all ages to take daily actions that have a positive and protective influence over their health, combat deforestation, protect the health of the Rainforest, it’s indigenous communities, and the planet at large.
