Adopt a School ProjectThe Friends of the Amazon has an Adopt a School Program that provides school supplies to children that live in rural and native communities in the Amazon Rainforest.  To explain, schools are free, but school supplies are not.  Therefore, in order to attend school, the children need to buy basic school supplies such as pencils, pens, notebooks, paper, scissors, rulers and erasers.  Living in isolated villages with no income, humble families are not able to pay for these basic supplies.  Friends of the Amazon provides school supplies so that rural and native children can attend school. 

The specific goals of the Friends of the Amazon Adopt a School Program include:
1) Distributing essential school supplies for needy students and teaching materials for teachers, including supplies for the classrooms, and books for the libraries in the rural and native community.
2) Sponsoring teacher workshops in rural and indigenous community schools on methods to increase bilingual reading and writing skills of native students.
3) Producing teacher's guides and booklets for activities in environmental education instruction in rural and native schools.
Adopt an school in the Amazon! Support the Friends of the Amazon's Adopt a School Program.  Education is free for rural and native children, but pupils need to purchase their own school supplies such as pencils, pens, notebooks, paper, scissors, rulers and erasers. Buying school supplies is a severe economic burden for most rural and native families as the majority of people living in the forest have no source of income.
