Support indigenous communities & help with the protection of the rainforest

From August 2019 I will volunteer at the organization Atiycuy Perú for one year. Atiycuy Perú supports communities in the rain forest in a holistic and sustainable way.

Yvonne W. from VISIONEERS e.V.Write a message

¡Hola!

I'm Yvonne, 22 years old and from Tuebingen, Germany. After graduating from "high school" (with "Abitur") in the summer of 2019, I will travel to Villa Rica, Perú to be a full-time volunteer with the support of the organization Visioneers e.V. for one year. In Perú I will work for the partner organization Atiycuy which stands up for sustainable development in the rain forest.

What does Atiycuy Perú do?
- supporting kids, teens and their families to help the kids and teens develop a healthy and strong personality and to help them discover their personal potential (kids program)
- strengthening indigenous communities in the rain forest area, (e.g. in their self-government) to live in dignity and to protect their cultural heritage and forests (village program)
- with sustainable development projects Atiycuy and the inhabitants of the villages around protect a rain forest area which is 18,000 hectare big (nature conservation program)
With the help of these programs the work of Atiycuy has a positive impact to all areas of life for the people there.

I will have the pleasure to contribute to the work of Atiycuy, gain interesting experiences and learn from the people there. I'm really looking forward to that!

But to put that plan into practice I need your help! For my (weltwärts) voluntary service there are incurred expenses (e.g. for accommodation, food, ...). The weltwärts program is funded 75% (which is about 9000€) by the German Federal Ministry of Economic Cooperation and Development, but 25% (about 3000€) should be raised by the volunteer.
That's why I'd appreciate it very much if you support me. Even the smallest contribution will help, not only to support me with my project, but also to realize the weltwärts voluntary program and therefore the idea of intercultural exchange in the future.
Thank you very much!

Love, Yvonne
