PROJECTS THAT YOU ARE GIVING BACK
Why is it important to give back to the community? Because the secret to living is giving. True fulfillment doesn’t lie in material possessions. Those things are all parts of achieving a good life. But the real meaning in life never comes from what you get, it comes from what you give.
The importance of giving back to society can’t be understated. When you give back, you’re able to better the lives of the people around you, the people in your community, or the lives of people somewhere else in the world. And finding meaning by giving back to the community doesn’t just benefit others – it benefits you.
Shipibo Collective is committed to giving back to the people and the environment to overcome the problems that threaten our forests and communities in order to create a new compassionate and generous world. This is why we are donating 10 percent of the profits to give capacitation, education, medical services, and basic necessities to our community.
Want to make a donation? If you want to support this project you can do it in multiple ways. There are many different ways to show your support. The most direct way is to make a donation directly to the collective. Another way is to purchase some of the wondrous artworks from the artisans and share them, or you can consider becoming a monthly donor. There are also volunteer opportunities, and some work can be done that will help support us to continue these dreams.
Where do your donations go? Shipibo Collective was born in 2015 with a project to change the perspective of traditional art, bringing together more than 25 Shipibo Conibo artisans.
Each one fulfilling a very important role. We seek to create a community where these women are revalued and respected for the immense ancestral knowledge they inherit.
Create doors for new opportunities with our art, a heritage to share, something that was inherited from our ancestors and that we still preserve in our memories. Thanks to Adelina Maldonado Agustín a Shipibo Conibo artist from Pucallpa, Perú, the founder of this collective, has been working with 2 communities of 25 shipibo Conibo families since 2011 since then has been working to develop a market for their beautiful artworks to continue sharing the ancestral art of Kené. So now we need your help!
With your donations, we will be able to work on audiovisual projects for our collective and the Shipibo Nation. In order to preserve this ancient culture with photographs, videos, audios, to be able to show the next generation and the world the importance of this rich cultural heritage.
We will be able to give capacitation to the Shipibo artisans with professionals in fashion and designing in order to create a better quality of garments.
We will be able to capacitate the next generations with our collective artists about the ancestral art of Kene in order for them to not forget this knowledge and create more opportunities with this art.
We will be able to plant trees in our village with the reforestation program of “Kushi Tribe” in our village.
We will be able to give more opportunities for education, capacitation, basic necessities, and medical services to our community.
Any amount, no matter how big or small, makes a world of difference. If you are interested to be part of this project as a volunteer contact us directly. Your generosity and support are received with incredible gratitude and love. It will make us stand even stronger!
