You're about to embark upon an exciting journey into the Peruvian Amazon. The Amazon CyberSchool is a unique two way portal that offers the opportunity for members to learn about the environment in the Amazon, communicate with people just like themselves living there, and share stories about what they are doing to promote a more sustainable world. Want to get involved? See the overview presentation below.




For a nominal annual fee — about $1 a day — American schools and organizations can sponsor a Peruvian school and become members of ¡Amigos! A Partnership for Education.

Besides unlocking total access to this two-way, media-rich web experience, the funding

1) provides resources to schools,
2)supports community development efforts,
3) and helps teachers develop new educational tools.



Classroom Improvement School/Village Partnerships Teacher's Academy

Classroom Improvement:
Schools in rural villages are typically a one-room schoolhouse without electricity or textbooks. Sponsorship helps schools buy desperately needed supplies, such as pencils, chalk boards, and exercise books.

School/Village Partnerships:
Peruvian schools frequently participate in community development projects as part of their commitment to the ¡Amigos! program. Projects such as installing solar pasteurization systems for clean drinking water, offering workshops on organic gardening, and developing interpretive nature trails transform schools from their traditional roles as a learning place for children to dynamic, vital life-long learning centers for the entire village.

Teacher's Academy:
The ¡Amigos! program offers experiential workshops for American and Peruvian educators on curriculum development and delivery, pairs Peruvian teachers with scientists for informational sessions, and provides an ever-expanding resource toolkit right here on the web. It also provides access to a series of unique field workshops in Peru. [more]
