Sacha Warmi Center by Didier Lacaze in Ecuador Static Preview

Sacha Warmi means "spirit woman of the forest" in the Kichwa language. A Female enchantress, she confers wisdom and beauty upon women, evoking the feminine spirit of nurturance and support for human life that arises from the Earth and Nature itself.

We hear a lot about how the Amazonian Rainforest is disappearing—but we don't hear much about how that affects the health of the people who once called it home.

By now it's an old story: Despite the international efforts that have taken place over the last 30-40 years to protect the Amazonian Rainforest and its indigenous peoples, ecological and cultural degradation continues at an alarming rate.

We invite you to create with us a beautiful and important project: the Sacha Warmi Center—an educational resource that will serve many people—located on the outskirts of the Amazonian Rainforest in the Pastaza region of Ecuador.

Thank you for your generosity and support. Rosa Canelos and Didier Lacaze
