About Ikiama Nukuri
Pachamama Alliance’s groundbreaking Ikiama Nukuri program aims to eliminate all preventable deaths in pregnancy and childbirth of Achuar mothers and babies, and to improve community health by empowering Achuar women and communities with the tools needed to be their own agents of change.
As a result, Ikiama Nukuri has not only greatly improved community health and birthing practices throughout the rainforest; it has also become a platform for women to find their voice and build collective power as leaders in their communities.
It is clear that this is part of the larger global movement of women’s voices and female leadership that is emerging around the globe today.
Pachamama would like to reward one applicant the opportunity to experience this Journey on a scholarship.
