Celebrate Earth Day with Chaikuni Institute
CATAPA wants to dedicate this Earth Day to our partner organization in Peru, the Chaikuni Institute. They are facing a critical financial situation due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We want them to keep fighting against climate change and we are sure you do too! Here we are sharing their message and call for donations.
FROM CHAIKUNI INSTITURE
Today is the 50th Anniversary of #EarthDay, a historic moment of reflection and celebration… But, what is different this year?
The COVID-19 pandemic has affected all of us in different measures and proportions, we all know that nothing will be the same again. It’s time to reflect, prevent, and reinvent.
After 8 years of work promoting sustainable land-management and forest regeneration with local communities, supporting indigenous federations in making their fundametal rights respected, and accompanying indigenous students on their journey to become professionals, the Chaikuni Institute faces a critical situation. If we don’t quickly raise enough funds we will have to end our activities.
Now, more than ever, we need your support. We are working to mitigate the effects of climate change by regenerating the most important terrestrial ecosystem, the Amazon rainforest. We can’t give up. There is too much to be done.
Celebrate nature, celebrate life and celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day with us. Please, DONATE NOW and become part of the global movement to fight climate change
