In case you want to support this and / or other communities contact us by email.
The Achuar Ecological Foundation Kapawi, FAEK, Tel: (593) 3 - 2885 883, 2884 875, mail firstname.lastname@example.org is advancing the projects together with CODESO.
We are currently looking for partners to finance the water and electrification project with solar energy.
One of the most important community needs of more than 30 families is drinking water and electricity. The only source of sustainable and economically viable energy due to the high cost of air transport is solar energy.
The dream of resident families is to be able to provide this service also to the school, its students and its teachers.
Other projects are ecotourism and productive projects.
The Kapawi community is located in eastern Ecuador, in the Pastaza Province, on the Pastaza River, near the border with Peru.
The Achuar population of Kapawi lives by hunting wild animals, artisanal fish and their farms.
The average monthly gross income of a family is less than US $ 20 or less than 10% of the national minimum income. Much of the economic income is spent on air mobilization.

Profitable with low daily costs, Irrigation systems, for livestock, with a long useful life. Electric solar systems independent or autonomous. Support and protection of medical and computer equipment, radio communication, electric fences. Photovoltaic panels, MPPT regulators, stationary batteries (lithium), and pure sine wave inverters.
