A FAMILIES’ COMPANY
Our work relies on the partnerships we make with the riverside communities, either through co-operatives or by dealing directly with the families. We have a very close relationship with them. When we visit the Amazon, we stay at their places. We are welcomed with open arms. We eat together, sleep in the beds and hammocks they provide us and live their daily life in the forest.
