For every item sold on our online shop, we will donate 5% of the profits to Survival, a Non-profit organisation. Survival is the only organization working for tribal peoples’ rights worldwide.

The organisation was founded in 1969 by a group of individuals concerned about the well being of tribal people after the genocide of Amazon Indians. Survival focuses on the most vulnerable tribal peoples, those who have the most to lose. These are usually those less able to articulate their own views, and the least contacted by, or ‘integrated’ into, wider society, and often face complete destruction from disease and land theft.

Survival is almost entirely funded by members of the public; no national government money is accepted by Survival; as they are the main violators of tribal rights. Survival will also not take money from companies which might be abusing tribal peoples.

Donations to Survival are allocated to educational, research and outreach work, with very little spent on administration. Survival also manages special funds where every cent raised goes to tribal peoples’ own projects. For over 40 years Survival has helped tribal peoples defend their lives, protect their lands and determine their own futures.

A summary of Survival annual review can be found here.

This could be the biggest difference you ever make, join the cause, and help Survival’s fight against discrimination, racism and prosecution of tribal peoples.
