Fundacion Kara Solar

$6,000 to support installing solar and shortwave radio communications systems in 5 Shiwiar communities in their territory in the Ecuadorian Amazon located near the border with Peru, covering an area of over 500,000 acres of intact roadless rainforest that has been defended by Shiwiar from being opened up to oil development. The project was initiated at the request of the communities to help address the Covid crisis currently impacting them and will also support future coordination between communities as they continue to defend their rights and traditional territories.
