Health

The Yanomami have unique knowledge and skill sets in healing the sick and maintaining health. However, as indigenous communities change and integrate with global society, they need collaborative support from the outside to fight against introduced diseases, address challenges due to change in settlement patterns, and adopt integrative public health measures.

Intercultural Education

Article 14 of the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples states that “Indigenous peoples have the right to establish and control their educational systems and institutions providing education in their own languages, in a manner appropriate to their cultural methods of teaching and learning.” The Good Project supports existing programs that provide intercultural and bilingual education for indigenous people. 

 

Research

The more we can close our knowledge gap in how diet, lifestyles, and the human microbiome is linked to health and well-being, the better equipped the world can be to fight disease from the jungles to urban cities.

Raising Awareness

“Education gives us the chance to understand that we are all tied together as citizens of the global community, and that our challenges are interconnected.” — Ban Ki-moon, UN Secretary-General. The Good Project participates in intercultural programs in schools and communities worldwide to promote the importance of studying indigenous peoples and the need to protect them.
