The Instituto Amazonas is currently implementing two projects: a soap making cottage factory in the indigenous Kayapo tribe in Piaruçu village and the other to reduce Period poverty in the town of Colider, MT.

DJYRE (soap making in the jungle)

Djyre was the name of a warrior woman, known in the Kayapó culture for her strength and bravery. The women chose this name for their training center in the Piaruçu village. Djyre will offer education and training to make handmade soap and soaps for own consumption and for sale in the store that will work on this site.
