Rainforest Flow delivers clean water, sanitation, and hygiene programs to indigenous people in Manu Biosphere Reserve in Peru’s Amazon rainforest. 

Our collaborative, integrated, and sustainable WASH programs empower indigenous people to become stewards of their own health and resources. 

Since 2003, Rainforest Flow has collaborated with Peruvian health and environmental agencies and indigenous communities to deliver more than 64 million gallons of safe drinking water to four villages in the global biodiversity hotspot. 

We have educated hundreds of families about health,  hygiene, and sanitation to help them strengthen the health of their communities.

Rainforest Flow is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit registered in the United States.

We inspire indigenous people to become stewards of their health, their enviroment, and their future.
