Amazon Forest Recovery after the Fires

Over the past few weeks, the world’s attention has turned to the Climate Marches as well as the  burning of the Amazon Forest.  The fires that have ravaged the Amazon have been focused on Brazil which is home to over 60% of the primordial forest that serves as thermostat and lungs for the planet. However, the burning and loss of forest lands that have occurred in Brazil have also taken place in neighboring countries including Peru, Bolivia, and Ecuador.

As the media lens has shifted away from the story the impact of these fires continues to have a devastating effect on not only the environment but to the many indigenous communities that live in areas deeply affected by the fires and destruction.  Umbrella Initiatives Foundation is working together with local community members in Bolivia to begin the process of recovery and establishing communities devastated by fire.  Please read more about our work in Bolivia and help us to make a difference...  Read More

School is Back & Planning has begun!

School is back in session for most of the northern hemisphere and students and parents are getting use to the new routine, teachers, and subjects.  However in  Peru and Bolivia the academic school year is still in session and the new school year does not start until February and March of 2020.  Here at Umbrella Initiatives Foundation we are ramping up our preparations and currently students are in the midst of their academic studies.  To continue our amazing work with the Backpack Project and ensure that we can reach even more students, volunteers and schools we need your help.  Please consider becoming a sustaining supporter of our work.
