The quilombolas women

An experiential trip with the female leaders of the quilombola communities of the Ribeira Valley.

An opportunity to exchange the knowledge and learning about the communities’ daily life, the management and organization of the work. 

You will hear about the richness of their culture and their challenges by the voice of the women who live there, besides getting to know their projects: the handicraft, the cooking, the organic agriculture, among others.

Come with us and connect with the cultural roots in Brazil's largest Atlantic Forest area. Ribeira Valley is the home to one of the richest socio-environmental ecosystems in the world. The region also brings together several groups of traditional communities: quilombolas, caiçaras and indigenous peoples.
