Footprint For Life

Do you want to save the rainforest?

The Yachana Footprint For Life program is creating an ecological corridor to link our 1,000 hectare (2,500 acre) reserve to a national park that is at a higher elevation, expanding the protected area, and allowing the migration of species through the area.


Do you want to help people?

You can be involved in our Yachana program for older adults. Yachana is involving more than 300 older adults from our Amazon communities.  We are providing activities in our campus focused on agriculture, cooking, mechanics, and much more.  All designed to give feelings of self-worth, comradery and provide physical and mental stimulation.
