Fundação Amazonas Sustentável

An organisation that cares for the people who care for the forest

Fundação Amazonas Sustentável (FAS) is a Brazilian non-governmental, non-profit organisation created in 2008. Its continuing mission is to contribute to the sustainable development of the Amazon by demonstrating that the rainforest is worth more standing that being cleared, and tackling poverty in vulnerable communities that depend on the forest for their survival.

In 2019 alone, FAS assisted more than 9,430 families, benefiting more than 39,460 people living in the State of Amazonas across an area of ​​more than 11 million hectares, building solutions for the sustainable development through programs and projects that address strategic issues for the region.
