I hope this letter finds you in good health and high spirits. I am writing to express my heartfelt gratitude for your generous donation to the Young Ecoleaders program, which has made it possible for young individuals to visit and learn more about the Mata Atlantica in the interior of Minas Gerais. Your support has provided a transformative experience for these young minds.
I would like to share with you a heartwarming story about one particular child who has been profoundly impacted by this program. This child has eagerly absorbed every bit of knowledge about nature, and their passion is beautifully expressed through their drawings. Their artwork depicts the lessons they have learned so far, emphasizing the importance of living in harmony with animals, trees, and plants, and recognizing nature as our true home.
The visit to the Mata Atlantica has been a life-changing experience for these young participants. It has allowed them to witness the beauty and wonder of the natural world firsthand, fostering a deep connection and understanding of the delicate balance that exists within it. They have come to realize that we are all interconnected, and that our actions have a profound impact on the environment and the creatures that call it home.
Your contribution to the Young Ecoleaders program has not only provided these children with an opportunity to explore the Mata Atlantica, but it has also instilled in them a sense of responsibility towards nature and a desire to protect it. They have learned valuable lessons about conservation, sustainability, and the importance of preserving our natural heritage for future generations.
Once again, thank you for your invaluable contribution. Your generosity has helped shape the minds and hearts of these young ecoleaders, and their commitment to protecting our precious natural resources is a testament to the impact your support has made.
With deepest appreciation,
The Iracambi team
Dear environmetalist friends!
We wanted to share with you some exciting news about our recent meeting with the teachers of a school in Cataguases.
We had the opportunity to visit their horto and learn about their new environmental education project in partnership with the IEF.
We were thrilled to be invited to the meeting and grateful for the chance to share our own experiences in the field of environmental education.
It was inspiring to see the dedication of the teachers and the progress they have already made in their work.
Overall, it was a wonderful experience, and we are looking forward to continuing to collaborate with the teachers and the school on future projects. And we hope to have the same opportunity in many more schools.
But for now, we are arising, one step at time.
So, take care and keep up with us!

We hope this letter finds you well. It is with immense gratitude that we write this report to express our deep appreciation for the generous support we received during the "Little by Little" campaign for the preservation of the Atlantic Rainforest. Thanks to your valuable contribution, we have achieved significant results in protecting this rich and diverse region.
We wanted to share with you some exciting news on our beloved project, that has been happening at Iracambi: the arrival of the new team of young ecoleaders. And you already know that the project aims to empower young people to become leaders in protecting the environment.
Recently, a girl named Elena joined the project, and her presence has been truly impactful.
She has brought even more joy to the classes and activities at the NGO, and we quickly noticed her talent for drawing.
So, we offered the volunteers a plaque to paint, with the goal of making the entrance to Iracambi even more vibrant and representative of the children who come here and their love for nature.
We're happy to report that the plaque has been successfully installed, and it was a truly special moment for all of us. Elena's contribution to the project has been invaluable, and we're grateful for the opportunity to work with such talented and passionate young people.
We hope this letter finds you inspired to get involved in your own community's efforts to protect the environment. We look forward to catching up with you soon.

Dayana, the coordinator of our beloved project, has been receiving an outpouring of letters from children who are eager to become the next generation of environmental leaders. These letters demonstrate the passion and dedication of the young people in the program, and Dayana is thrilled to see so many children inspired to make a positive impact on the planet.
As Dayana reviews the letters, she is struck by the depth of understanding and knowledge that many of the children possess about environmental issues. She knows that selecting the next group of Young Ecoleaders will be a difficult task, as so many of the applicants show great promise.
But Dayana is determined to find the most committed and enthusiastic young people to join the program. She knows that with the right training and support, these children can make a real difference in their communities and beyond. She is excited to help them develop their skills and become the environmental leaders of the future.
We highly recommend that you stick around to see what will happen next. There are exciting developments on the horizon and you won't want to miss out on what's to come. So, please stay tuned and see what unfolds!
Love from the rainforest.

Dear fellow educators,
First of all, we want to thank you for your support of our educational program. Together we really are making a difference!
We know that environmental education is a fundamental tool for training young leaders committed to protecting and preserving the environment. It opens doors for the next generation to develop skills and knowledge that allow them to understand the importance of environmental conservation and promote positive changes in their communities. And we want to share some feedback from our Ecoleaders.
Our educational coordinator recently met up with a group of last year’s Ecoleaders. In the course of the conversation they told her that, by participating in the program they learned a lot of new information on topics such as climate change, waste management, biodiversity conservation and sustainable use of natural resources. Not only that, but they also developed leadership and teamwork skills, which are essential to the success of any project.
But the truth is that you already know that. And now, they do too.
And it seems that the local authorities do too! So we are happy to announce that for the second consecutive year we have managed to establish a partnership with city hall to provide transport for the schoolchildren to Iracambi, which is wonderful because here at Iracambi we don’t yet have a school bus!
Not bad, is it? Together we’re raising a new generation of environmental leaders.
