We envision an Amazon free of destructive mining practices where people have access to safe, dignified livelihoods and ecosystems thrive.
We work to cultivate a cleaner gold supply chain to preserve and protect the ecosystem and biodiversity, and to strengthen human rights in the Amazon.
Amazon Aid’s mission is to preserve and protect the rainforest for the health of the entire planet.
We are actively working on systems change in the dangerous and growing threat of illicit and unregulated artisanal and small-scale gold mining (ASGM), which has contributed to rampant deforestation, heavy mercury pollution, violence against Indigenous and local communities, criminal activity, and global climate impacts.
We understand that transforming the gold supply chain will necessitate diverse stakeholders working together. We are already leading these collaborative efforts and launching an action plan.
Amazon Aid is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization.
