We are an international not-for-profit organization focusing on humanitarian, health care and gender equality issues afflicting remote and isolated communities around the world.
Our acronym stands for Knowledge / Savoir / Saber in our four languages of work (English, French, Portuguese and Spanish), referring to knowledge exchange by means of Information and Communications Technologies (ICTs).
We work alongside indigenous peoples to challenge inequality by promoting and helping establish innovation in healthcare provision.
Our Amazon Indigenous Health
™ program empowers people with culturally-appropriate programs that promote knowledge exchange to reduce preventable deaths of mothers and babies.
We support actions in:
- improved health care management
- establishment of telehealth networks
- women social & economic empowerment
Over the years, there has been steady disempowerment of indigenous peoples leading to weakened health profiles and lowered capacity to defend their territories in the Amazon rainforest.
