The first part of our mission is to provide education for indigenous peoples. We do this primarily through our program of institutional education grants, which provides small grants to non-profit organizations working in the capacity of indigenous education.
Organizations working for the education of indigenous peoples should download and complete our institutional education grant application form to apply. (You will need Adobe Acrobat Reader available for free from Adobe's website.) The application form includes instructions. Please contact us if you have any questions regarding eligibility or the application procedure.
In 2017 we donated the first US$ 500 installment of a US$ 1,000 grant to Help for Education and Local Projects IN The Gambia. This grant is helping to fund that organization's educational projects that benefit indigenous people in The Gambia, West Africa.
In 2016 we donated a total of US$ 300 to Centro Ecológico Maleku Araraf and Asociación de Guías Turísticos Indígenas Bribri de Talamanca. These grants helped the Maleku and Bribri indigenous peoples of Costa Rica to promote ecotourism-based educational programs that provide additional, sustainable income to their communities.
