In Belgium we organize activities as well, aimed at telling the story of the indigenous people (in Peru).
On the one hand, we organize fund raising activities for our projects in Peru, and on the other hand, educational activities that raise awareness about development issues.
One way of raising awareness is by providing information at our stands on the Feria Mundial in Ghent, or the Christmas market in Mechelen, to name but two examples. Putumayo vzw also organizes film screenings about oil issues, either with or without an introduction by a native leader from the affected area. Furthermore, our volunteers regularly give guest lectures about the violation of indigenous rights.
