Please consider donating to ETIV to support one of our crucial initiatives below:
- The Overall Sustainability of the NGO during these difficult times
The ETIV COVID-19 Emergency Response Plan
ETIV do Brasil has already begun taking-action to respond to the threat of COVID-19 and the increased poverty and hunger that the shutdown has caused our communities. Your support will further help us to:
Organize Food Donations
We have already begun to receive donations, purchase food and distribute it to the families most in need in our communities.
Purchase and distribute Masks
We have already begun purchasing and distributing masks in the poorest communities of Itacaré. We just found some local community members that have begun making hand-made re-usable masks. So we can support our neighbors and keep the community safer.
Set up Sanitation Stations
We will set up sanitation stations in key areas of our neighborhood where families do not have access to basic sanitation and running water. This will help ensure that everyone in our community will be able to wash their hands regularly, especially before they leave and return home or enter the local markets.
Support the ETIV COVID–19 Emergency Response Plan!
We can accept financial contributions and/or collect the raw materials needed including dry or canned food goods, chlorine, buckets, tables and masks.
100% of all local donations go directly towards purchasing food and materials.
80% of all international donations will go towards purchasing food and materials, while only 20% will be used to support the salaries and overhead needed to collect, purchase and distribute food, masks and materials to those most in need.
Support the Sustainability of ETIV do Brasil
The overall sustainability of the NGO is at great risk of bankruptcy in the next few months as our financial streams have been abruptly halted.
After 5 years of increased success and impact on our community, ETIV do Brasil is looking at possible bankruptcy, especially if we are no longer able to keep our programs running or sign up volunteers and interns to support our work.
Your donation could make all the difference in allowing us to make it through these difficult times and restart our programming once the Covid-19 threat has passed.
Mangrove Restoration and Protection
The back yard of the new ETIV Complex opens up the mangrove forest, which is in desperate need of protection and restoration. People continue to build into and destroy this critical forest.
The mangroves are critical, because they:
Create incredibly diverse ecosystems
Protect our shorelines from storms and sea level rise
Filter toxins, metals, contaminants out of our water
Sequester an incredible amount of carbon from the atmosphere and put it back into the earth
Can reduce global warming and the effects of climate change about 4x more than the average tree.

Our mission is to support environmental conservation and development in Brazil with a deep focus on youth Development. However, we have geared up to also provide emergency support to our communities during the COVID-19 quarantine, but we need your support to stay afloat during these difficult times.
