Soon it will be possible for you to contribute directly to a reciprocity project of your preference!
We are supporting local communities in preserving their knowledge, cultural and natural heritage for future generations. It is important that traditional cultural preservation and modern development complement each other in the future. Please support us in one of the following projects:
Q’eros in Peru – Centre for ancestral culture
In coöperation with Hannah Rae’s Willka Yachay charity and the Q’eros, we are working on building a centre for ancestral culture where the Q’eros can gather, practise rituals, celebrate together and pass on their culture.
Kazakhs in Western Mongolia – Sustainable use of Golden Eagles in traditional Kazakh Falconry
The goal of this project is to ensure the co-existence of a healthy golden eagle population whilst keeping this ancient cultural tradition alive by promoting sustainable use of the eagle population. We are doing this in collaboration with the Mongolian Golden eagle Association and Nomadic Expeditions by WSCC of Mongolia.
Maasai in Kenya – Cultural Centre
Maasai Chief Sankale ole Ntutu and his wife Manon van Oldenbarneveld informed us that the Maasai community is in urgent need of a cultural centre. Due to fencing of their lands and urbanization, they experience loss of language, stories and traditional ceremonies. The culture centre will be built in collaboration with the Back to Nature Foundation.
Several communities in Papua New Guinea – Preservation of feather headdresses
Feather headdresses in Papua New Guinea are not only beautiful but form an indispensable part of the countless rituals and ceremonies that are an essential part of this culture. The bird-of-paradise is traditionally hunted for its feathers. Wildlife Conservation Society WSC is producing preservation sets for the feathers and we will distribute these to communities WSC has not been able to reach yet. This way the headdresses will be preserved for the next generations and the endangered bird-of-paradise population can flourish again.
