~ Pisatahua’s Sister Non Profits ~
Sustainable Bolivia is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization with offices in the United States and Bolivia. The organization’s mission it to promote economic and environmental sustainability through international collaboration with local Bolivian initiatives. Sustainable Bolivia and Pisatahua are independent organizations; however, they are intimately connected through financial support and human resource sharing.
Sustainable Bolivia was originally founded in 2007 in Cochabamba, Bolivia. Since its inception, the organization has received over 1,000 volunteers from more than 50 countries and raised an estimated $600,000 to support grass-root initiatives in Bolivia. Additionally, Sustainable Bolivia has provided 18 scholarships to qualified and deserving Bolivian students. Sustainable Bolivia is the international non-profit extension of the Bolivian-based non-profit “Fundación Amazonia.”
Fundación Amazonia is a Bolivian-based non-profit that fosters ecologically sound solutions for economic and social development in the Amazon Basin. Founded in 2017, Fundación Amazonia acts a Pisatahua’s non-profit extension to promote community based ecotourism, environmental education, reforestation, regenerative agricultural, and conservation projects. Fundación Amazonia is Pisatahua’s non-profit “on the ground”, working alongside local communities to provide sustainable livelihood opportunities, while protecting the flora fauna of the newly founded Aquicuana Reserve.
Efforts initiated by Fundación Amazonia and Sustainable Bolivia resulted in the establishment of the 20,000+ hectare (50,000+ acre) Aquicuana Reserve. This area of remarkable beauty and unsurpassed biologically diversity is now protected from agriculture expansion, ranching, logging, mining and natural resource extraction. Sustainable Bolivia, Fundación Amazonia and Pisatahua help manage the reserve, ensuring that deforestation and degradation of lakes and rivers are alleviated.
Pisatahua is committed to protecting our land, communities and traditions. We are always looking for partners who can help us realize our mission.
