International Day of the World's Indigenous Peoples

On August 9th each year, the world celebrates and promote the cultures and contributions of indigenous peoples to improve our environment and society.

Indigenous peoples reside in some of the poorest communities in the world and we have seen first hand the inadequate conditions they endure.  Despite their challenges, community members remain passionate to preserve their cultures and ensure a healthy future for their children.  We continue to support projects in indigenous communities worldwide and we invite everyone to join us.
