Walking to School in Ghana

In Adukrum, a village near Kumasi, Ghana, Ashanti children must bring their own chairs to school every day. But they'd carry their desks there if they had to. They love school.

Amazon Indians Never Kill Young Animals

To eat, the Indians of the Amazon rain forest must hunt. However, they never take from the forest more than what they need. We, too, kill animals to eat. We kill cows, sheep, and pigs. And not always humanely. We also kill wild animals to grace our walls with their heads or use their skins or tusks. We even kill calves and lambs. The Indians never kill young animals. After hunting down their mothers, they adopt them as lifelong pets, never to end as food. Women will go as far as breast-feed the youngest animals.

Many of Brazil's Awá are still uncontacted, and they are running for their lives.

A wave of illegal loggers, settlers and ranchers have invaded their lands, and time is running out.
Today Colin Firth helps us to launch a major new campaign to save the Awá, and we need your help.

‘One man has the power to stop the loggers: Brazil’s Minister of Justice. But it’s just not his priority. Let’s push it up his list.’
— Colin Firth

Please watch our new film, and take a few seconds to send a message to Brazil's Minister of Justice: he can send in the federal police to catch the loggers, and keep them out for good. And, even more importantly, please share this with your family and friends.
If enough people show they care, it will work.

Plastic Surgery

To improve their looks, people worldwide are getting increasingly under the knife. In Benin, as in other parts of Africa, the knife creates, or at least used to create, tribal identity through facial scars. Held down by her mother on a bed of leaves, the poor little girl was only four. But she needed the many dozens of sharp lines on her face to look like a Somba. And what a valiant little girl she was! She did not even cry.
