|Amazon Alliance for Indigenous and Traditional Peoples of the Amazon Basin||
The Amazon Alliance for Indigenous and Traditional Peoples of the Amazon Basin is an initiative born out of the partnership between indigenous and traditional peoples of the Amazon and groups and individuals who share their concerns for the future of the Amazon and its peoples. The eighty non-governmental organizations from the North and South active in the Alliance believe that the future of the Amazon depends on its peoples and the state of their environment.

YACHAY WASI, Inc. was approved by the United Nations on March 27, 1997 as a Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) associated with the United Nations Department of Public Information (DPI). After 3 years of review, the officers of Yachay Wasi were thrilled for having been selected regardless of their small budget proving that dedication, initiative and work are really what matter in this new day of Civil Society.
