The Rainforest Fund is a charitable foundation
dedicated to the support of Indigenous Peoples and
traditional populations in their efforts to protect their
environment and fulfill their rights.
We are convinced that the accepted environmental and
human rights principles embody the right of everyone
to a secure, healthy and ecologically sound
environment, and that environmental degradation
leads to human rights violations such as the right to
life, health, and culture.
The Rainforest Fund bears in mind the universality, indivisibility, and interdependence of all human
rights, and carries out its mission by:
Funding programs and projects aimed at supporting
Indigenous Peoples and traditional populations of the
rainforests to assert their rights, to promote a
sustainable development of their communities and to
challenge governmental practices that have a damaging
effect on their environment.
