1 acre of rainforest saved!
Save the rainforest - 1 acre saved so far!
Home to the world’s largest tropical rainforest on Earth, the Amazon is legendary for its great biodiversity that contains millions of species, many still undescribed. However, during the past few decades, nearly 20% of its lush forest has been lost, removing a staggering amount of habitat needed by the area’s unique wildlife to survive.
Rainforest Trust and local partner Center for the Development of an Indigenous Amazon (CEDIA) are working to protect the missing link that will create a combined 7.8 million-acre tri-national corridor that will safeguard a massive swath of critical Amazon rainforest habitat across Peru, Ecuador and Colombia. This critical missing link will be secured by working to expand the current Airo Pai Community Reserve along with other regional protection efforts, protecting more than 1.3 million acres of the mega-diverse forests of northwestern Peru from threats such as illegal logging and oil exploitation.
- Location: Gueppi Region, Peru

Feeding to Educate
The aim of our feeding and nutrition programme is to eliminate the hunger and malnutrition which get in the way of poor children succeeding in education. A hungry child cannot concentrate. A malnourished child is more vulnerable to disease and so will miss more school due to ill health. Porridge and Rice provide two well-balanced meals per school day to each child (and teacher!) at our partner schools.
First and foremost Porridge and Rice are an educational charity: we want to help our partners to use education to break the cycle of poverty. We are sponsoring some of the teachers at our partner schools to do a teaching degree. We provide "sponsored" school places for the poorest children in the community by paying their school fees. We passionately believe that a good education should be universally accessible.
