What’s at Stake
Without the sufficient funds this land will be sold to a group of investors from Ambato, Tungurahua. This sacred land is under severe threat of gold mining, logging and development.
By saving this sacred land we will be ensuring its protection for generations to come. The Amazanga community refers to this part of the jungle as the ‘Eternal Forest of the Children,’ and this is the name that is being officially placed on this land’s title.
There are springs on this land that lead to several breathtaking waterfalls, and the preserving of this forest will also ensure the protection and purity of the water that comes out of the very ground that exists there.
The saving of this land will also allow the Amazanga community to achieve their vision of basing their natural medicine school in a pristine part the jungle that is accessible to the elders that are the teachers and holders of the forest’s sacred wisdom. In this way, the indigenous people of this part of the Amazon will have a place to truly protect and share their culture, traditions and ancestral wisdom. With such an incredible and accessible forest as its base, the School of Guayusa will be able to host healers, teachers and students from throughout South America and the world, uniting communities and preserving natural healing traditions for future generations.
