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.
