A small sampling of the people & projects we’ve helped
Safe Water to Drink, Clean Water to Wash
The Matsiegenka Tribe, Peru
Along with direct funding from Gray Robinson, Derek O’Neill, SQ Foundation and the generosity of many others, Rainforest Flow* has brought sustainable programs of clean water, sanitation, health and education to the people of the rainforest.
Thanks to the tireless work of this incredible organization, indigenous communities in the southeastern Peruvian Amazon now have equal access to safe drinking water, utility sinks with underground drains, bathrooms with an eco-friendly septic system at the village schoolhouse, education for children and families in daily health practices, and secondary and university level educational scholarships for village youth. Rainforest Flow stepped in following several unsuccessful attempts made by the Peruvian government’s social service agencies and various NGO’s to deliver safe drinking water to native communities. Because the people live in concentrated settlements, their rustic sanitation conditions contaminate the very streams and rivers where they gather their water. In dry season, the streams dry up and the women must gather their water from distant locations. To see these beautiful communities utilizing and enjoying clean water – which most of us take for granted – was incredibly special and heart-warming.
This is is the first time in the history of the Manu Park (established in 1973) that indigenous people in the protected zone are empowered by sustainable health infrastructure including, clean water, sanitation and health education. With continued support, Rainforest Flow can replicate health programming in additional indigenous communities in the Manu Rain Forest and Camisea River region.
SANITARY BATHROOMS for schoolchildren

Liberty/Freedom Swings for Wheelchair-bound Children in Ireland
Watching a child’s face light up at the simple pleasure of being on a swing can be as joyful as swinging yourself. No matter how old you are, we can all recall the feeling of having the wind blow through your hair, the excitement of swinging back and forth, and pushing your limits to go and feel “higher.” Together with the help of Derek O’Neill, SQ Foundation and others, many wheelchair-bound children are now able to use and enjoy a swing and have as much fun as everybody else – many for the first time – just like able-bodied children, and experience a sense of movement and freedom.
These “Liberty Swings” officially opened a few years ago in Wexford, Ireland, allow kids with limited mobility to get onto a Liberty Swing and experience the sense of movement and freedom that comes from enjoying a swing. And, SQ Foundation has committed to fund 20 Liberty Swings that will be installed throughout Ireland over the next 10 years. Weeeeeee!
