Our educational programs are designed to inspire and empower young, middle-aged, and older children to foster a deep connection with the plant world, the Amazon and its indigenous communities. We use storytelling, songs, visual content and live events to connect children in the United States with children in the Amazon through creative projects that awaken a deep connection to the mother of all forests and build environmental leadership skills. Our programs teach children and high school students to daily actions that have a positive influence on their health, combat deforestation, protect the health of the Rainforest, its indigenous communities, the animals, and the planet at large, thus, teaching them we are all One Health.
As of now, Mothers of the Amazon are introducing their program in 2 schools in the United States, 1 in France reaching out to 13514 students.
One of our Amazon-focused, short program for high school students has been taught at CALP (Climate Action Leadership Program), an environmental leadership program part of the Las Virgenes Unified School District in California. The program was created by one of our mothers, Victoria Scott, a professor, and sustainability practitioner. Our short program was designed to encourage the CALP students to choose the protection of the Amazon as their main action during this program.
