Our Community & Staff

The Yachana Foundation has been operating in the Amazon region of Ecuador for 25 years and in ecotourism for 23 years through its tourism company Yachana Lodge S.A.

The mission of the Yachana Foundation is dedicated to finding sustainable solutions in the struggle between the ideals of rainforest preservation and the realities of life in the Ecuadorian Amazon.

Yachana Lodge and Yachana Foundation support the communities of the area through social and economic programs.

Yachana Lodge is a training facility for youth from throughout the region.

The majority of our staff has attended Yachana Foundation schools or has trained at the lodge.

We hire a local workforce as our commitment to the local community.
