The Chaikuni Institute is a non-profit organization and educational hub working for a truly sustainable future for the Peruvian Amazon. Through the union of ancient indigenous traditions with contemporary Permaculture design, we teach and apply regenerative community-based development practices in Amazonian communities. We bring together people from across the planet with indigenous people of the Peruvian Amazon to co-vision and commit to a common goal – working collectively for the protection of the Amazon rainforest, her people, traditions and biodiversity.

The Chaikuni Institute is currently in the process of design and development. Our current focus is on developing the permaculture plan and systems on our 175 hectare site, (http://terraphoenixdesign.com/portfolio/temple) which we will use as a base for our future education, research and outreach projects. Your participation will be vital in helping us grow and realize our vision.
Currently we have two opportunities on offer right now to volunteer or intern, the main difference is the amount of time and thus responsibilities you will take on. For the full description and to apply please see here - http://chaikuni.org/education/internship/
We hope this interests many of you and to hear from you soon,
