About

Out of the 6.7 billion people on earth, 2.4 billion lack access to basic sanitation and 663 million lack access to clean water. Every 20 seconds a child dies of a waterborne illness and 443 million school days are lost each year from water related illnesses. You can help fight the water crisis by joining us in the Amazon.

If you are ready for a true adventure, then the Amazon is the destination for you. Navigating the Amazon river by canoe and braving the jungle by land puts you in direct contact with the people that live with this mighty waterway. By day you may be digging wells or teaching hygiene classes, and by night you will sleep in hammocks. There is no better way to be truly immersed in the culture of another community.
