CARE is the self-led indigenous organisation of the Asháninka people in the Ene river valley, central Peruvian Amazon. Representing 17 communities and 33 annexes in the Ene River, the main aim of CARE is to support the Ashaninka communities to achieve a “good life.” Under CARE’s leadership, they have emerged from the darkness of civil war, strongly defending a way of life that upholds their culture and protects their forests. We have worked with CARE since 2008, primarily on our Sustainable Livelihoods project, and our joint work focusses on using technology and innovation to support these endeavours.
