How do you want to leave the world for your children?
Here at Our Whole Village, we believe adventure and sustainability come hand-in-hand.
What is sustainable travel?
Sustainable travel is a travel mindset and method that...
🌎 Reduces a traveler’s carbon footprint
🌎 Avoids further damage to overly visited areas
🌎 Respects local culture and empower local communities
🌎 Protects local ecosystems from pollution and waste
More than anything, sustainable travel teaches us how to interact with the world around us so that it will be here for the generations to come. We want to help families connect with each other and the world, its people, and its cultures.
Together, we can make a difference.
Together, we can effectively help women, children and families all over the globe.
Together, we can raise good global citizens and make this a better world for our children.
Ways we are making a difference:
We believe that we all have a responsibility to fight climate change. We work with partners that are committed to environmental responsibility, by reducing carbon emissions and compensating for unavoidable emissions.
By working with these parts we are helping generate a positive impact in those destinations, promoting renewable energies and helping to reforest areas of land that need it most.
Fundação Almerinda Malaquias (FAM) is a Brazilian non-profit based in Novo Airão, on the Rio Negro River about 180 km upstream of Manaus. Established in 1997, the organization aims at improving the quality of life of the local inhabitants through education, the creation of new opportunities, integration in the work field and development of new markets.
FAM trains local women and youth on woodworking, marquetry and handicraft, as well as on environmental education and sustainable use of local resources. The foundation currently supports 123 kids and 30 artisans.
Our contributions helped them build a local store, where they can sell their beautiful woodwork/marquetry and artisanal soap products.
Vivamazonia, a constructivist school up the Rio Negro that caters to students ages 6-15. Funds here help with infrastructure (kitchen and bathroom), renovations, as well as food and transportation for the kids whenever needed.
