John Tindall's Project in Peru

email for easy payment info

The Peru Project has been set up by John Tindall to advance the quality of life of indigenous communities through education in sustainable management of the natural environment.


A project that started 6 years ago in Peru, when John began working with the children of an Indigenous Amazonian community when he saw their need for self-sufficiency, as their ancient wisdoms were quickly being replaced with Western practices. 

He taught them to teach themselves and their community;

how to cultivate the crop with which they nourish themselves, how to treat themselves with their own ancient practices and acupuncture, how to defend themselves with martial arts, and gave them the opportunity to build a school to spread out the learning to their community, cultivating new generations of self-sufficient young adults who preserve their land, their inherited wisdom and traditions. 

John has raised the funds to support the Indigenous people with the courses he teaches at the Yuan College, Qi Gong classes and retreats. 100% of his earnings go directly to fund the projects to sustain the land and its people.

6 years later, the Peru Project has been established to spread the seeds of self-sufficiency across all parts of the globe, supporting the young generations of indigenous communities to preserve and sustain their ancient traditions and natural environment.

Our Purpose:

2. To provide comprehensive practical education in sustaining the lands ecosystems and stimulating biodiversity and restoring water sources, etc.

3. To prompt the integration of modern sustainable solutions with the existing indigenous traditions within the community.

4. To provide a complete record and information depository of the collaborative work and results achieved for the benefit of humanity

5. To provide and assist other relevant groups and individuals access to the benefits of sustainable management of the environment in indigenous communities
