We support the programs and projects proposed by indigenous populations regarding the recovery of traditional knowledge and practices, in order to strengthen their cultural systems and help improve their health and life conditions in general:
1) Education – Training.
2) Promotion Cultural Sensitization.
3) Participative Research.
4) Sustainable Economy.
We developed our projects together with communities based on deep dialogue and reflection processes. We call this «participatory action research». Projects can only be successful if there is a clear awareness and a full commitment by communities and project teams. The role of the Sacha Warmi Foundation is to facilitate, accompany and support these processes.
