In April 2014 CONAPAC's Adopt-A-School volunteers delivered school supplies and water filtration systems to over 100 schools and 3,500 teachers and students along the Amazon and Napo Rivers. Adam Dewey from our US partner organization, the Detroit Zoological Society, documented the event and produced a video to give you an idea of the work being done. Song and music provided by Amazon community members.
CONAPAC and The Detroit Zoological Society work together with Amazon Explorama Lodges to facilitate the Adopt-A-School program. Over the years, the program has grown and evolved to meet the changing needs of Amazon River students, teachers, and classrooms. Each year, we are excited to invite volunteers to help with the delivery of school supplies and to assist in community service projects.
We are partnered with Pack for a Purpose to better assist you with a suggested list of donations that you can carry down. If you find yourself traveling to the Amazon rainforest and staying with Explorama Lodges, take a look at their site.
GIVE THE GIFT OF CLEAN WATER
CONAPAC has been been providing access to clean water in the Peruvian rainforest since 2008. Our Family Water Project places Sawyer PointONE™ water filtration systems in individual homes in smaller communities where a large water treatment plant is impractical.
CONAPAC is a Peruvian non-profit organization whose mission is to promote conservation of the rainforest through education of its stewards, the people who live along the Amazon and Napo Rivers. Our centerpiece project is the Adopt-A-School program, which is strengthened by workshops and complemented by service and sustainable projects in river communities.
