Ricancie Charity Profile

During the 1990s several rural Quichua communities living in the Napo province of Amazonian Ecuador developed a community-based ecotourism project. The idea was born and the first infrastructure built in accordance with the communal philosophy of the quichua which encourages the participation of all affected paraties in decision making. Today, the network consists of nine villages united by the RICANCIE organization. RICANCIE members rely on self-marketing to promote their unique vision of ecotourism.

RICANCIE has taken as its primary objective the defense of the Quichua territory against encroaching mining and oil companies. Furthermore, tourist groups were being sent into these communities by external travel agents. These groups paid only minimal reimbursement fees and left behind trash and bad feelings, which led to conflict within the communities. With organized tourism activities, RICANCIE pursues a self-determined development path and offers new perspectives for our children.
