The Women who Pollinate the Forest: Quilombo Bracinho do Icatu

The Women who Pollinate the Forest have a lot to say.
We want to amplify their voices.

The Amazonian women leading the project:

Women group Grupo Mulheres em Ação – Compartilhando Saberes, part of Associação Remanescentes de Quilombos São Tomé do Bracinho de Icatu (ARQSTBI).

Concerned with the community culture, livelihood and black ancestry, the group organizes activities such as awareness about environmental preservation, strengthening of family farming, empowering women and youth.
