This past weekend we shared an update with our continued support for Yle Ase de Yansa of Brazil. We want to help them reach their goal of $37,000 by the end of the year. Over the weekend we had another donation and we thank everyone who has supported! However, we are still not even half way to their goal. If you are able to donate, please do! All donations made through our grant organization, The Conservancy Corp, are tax deductible!
This particular Quilombo has been suffering to provide health care services and education, especially during this pandemic. They also need help to build a new building as the structure has collapsed and the government has been fighting to take their land.
Learn more about the Yle Ase de Yansa and donate if you can!
