goals of the Matsés Movement Adopt an Indigenous School Program include:
1) Distributing school supplies for individual students and teachers, including
materials for the classroom, and books for the library in all fourteen
communities of the Matsés Native Community.
2) Sponsoring teacher workshops in community schools on strategies to improve
bilingual reading and writing skills of indigenous students.
3) Producing a teacher's guide of activities for environmental education
instruction in Matsés schools.
Adopt an indigenous school! Support the Matsés Movement's Adopt an Indigenous School Program.
Education is free for Matsés children, but students need to purchase their own
notebooks, pens, pencils and rulers. Buying school supplies represents a severe
financial burden for most Matsés as the majority of Matsés families have no
source of income.
Please realize that the
Matsés Movement does not solicit nor accept any donations from the public.
If you want to make a donation to preserve the cultures of indigenous
Amazonians, we suggest that you contact them and give the donation directly to
the native people.
