The Threat of Mining: Protecting the Rainforest and Flourishing of the Jungle School
The miners are pushing with dogged determination to start mining operations, while exerting continuous pressure on the families holding the last plots of land in the waterfall area. Our vision, however, is to protect the area so that we can dedicate it to future generations while building a legalized Sachawa Forest School. This oasis of education will open not only to local children, but also to young explorers from around the world who will be able to explore the beauty of the rainforest and discover the mystery and immeasurable value of this natural treasure.
Report from the charity performance „4 Buchty“ in Husovka café
This unforgettable charity performance „4 Buns“ was organized on the initiative of our supporter and friend, Marcela Šiková, to support the rainforest and the Sachawa rainforest school. The evening brought a lot of laughter and joy, but we also discussed serious topics related to the current critical situation in the rainforest.
The entire evening was dedicated to charity and we were accompanied by a fantastic atmosphere. Traditionally, we served our guests with Amazonian healing tea, Wayusa. Thanks to the cozy environment of the Husovka café, which provided us with space for this event, we were able to create a pleasant and relaxed atmosphere where everyone felt at home.

Purchase of endangered 23-hectare area: Successful legalization behind us
We bring you great news about the process of purchasing 23 hectares of endangered land. Thanks to the tremendous wave of support we received from you, we have successfully completed the land legalization, and we can now joyfully announce that this land has officially been entrusted to the safe hands of the Život Postaru organization.
The process of legalization was incredibly challenging and demanding from all sides. Many obstacles stood in our way, both from the authorities and mining companies. Agustin and his family had to work tirelessly day and night to overcome all the challenges this journey brought. However, the result is more than a reward for all our efforts.

This year, we had the honor of participating in the Colours of Ostrava festival, which we enjoyed immensely. Our main objective in participating in this festival was to support the Sachawa indigenous school and kindergarten, which we established for the children in the rainforest to preserve their rich tradition and pass down indigenous wisdom to future generations. In the future, Sachawa also aims to connect indigenous people with residents of the Czech Republic, Slovakia, and other countries, so that we can mutually exchange our wisdom and skills.

Mining threats the land towards Casdada de Anaconda
After new round of negotiations with the families who own the land on the East river bank from Ruku Samay towards the Anaconda Falls, Agustin found the following. There are currently 4 families (in red on the map) that rush to sell their land. The main demand comes from gold mining companies, who have been trying to invade this territory around Ruku Samay Ecolodge (in orange/green) and Rio Blanco community (in blue) for several years.The logging companies are very rich, and offer inflated prices, which is the reason for increases in the purchase price of this land, climbing up to almost $13K for one hectar.
News from the Jungle
Why helping Amazon Forest?
Amazon rainforests are one of the biggest treasures on our Planet. They are the lungs of Earth and a home to more than ¼ of all vegetal and animal species. The amazon jungle is also among few last places on Earth where people live in close connection with nature.
Zivot Postaru is a non-profit organization that strives to protect and conserve the Amazon jungle and helps its inhabitants to maintain their homes, culture and the way of living which is in accordance with and respect for the nature. Part of Amazon rainforest around the river Napo basin is being devastated by the mining and logging activities of large corporations, and also by longing for inconveniences of modern civilization that is conquering indigenous people more and more.
Zivot postaru makes efforts to help locals to find balance and sustainability in this uneasy situation. More about the project..
to everyone who supports us!
