Education

 
The Angels of the Amazon has provided educational support for the villages of the Tahuayo River, concentrating on the four villages of the upper Tahuayo River, where the need is especially acute.  In addition to the support received by the government, AoA provides the local elementary grade schools with tutors, books, school supplies, tables, chairs, regular nutritional breakfasts, and most recently a playground in Chino Village. AoA has helped to start a secondary school and has plans to provide more development and infrastructure for this area in the future.
 
The largest measurable impact that the AoA has thus far had on the educational opportunities for the children is the Scholarship Program initiative. Students with academic potential are identified and matched with donors who are historically former guests of Amazonian Expeditions tour company. Students supported by the Scholarship Programs have gone on to attend high schools, technical schools and universities in Iquitos city. Many have earned honors and have started professional careers.  This program has proven to be the single best initiative in breaking the cycle of rural poverty. We currently have over 35 students on scholarship. AoA is looking to increase the number of academic sponsors, and there is no requirement of being a previous guest in order to be a sponsor.
 

Special attention has always been provided for children with medical and physical disabilities both in the Tahuayo River basin as well as in Iquitos city. Angels of the Amazon provides materials and supplies to parents and teachers to help them better service the needs of the children in their care.
