Co-founded by Sting, Trudie Styler, and Dr. Franca Sciuto in 1989, the organizations jointly known as Rainforest Foundation, began with a promise made by Sting to the Indigenous leader Raoni, of the Kayapó tribe, to help him and his people obtain legal rights to their traditional land. With these roots, Rainforest Foundation originally focused on the Amazon region of Brazil.
This commitment to Chief Raoni was fulfilled in 1992, thanks to the generous contributions and support of people from all over the world. The physical demarcation of the Kayapó tribe’s land was undertaken by the Indigenous People themselves through the most modern technology.
In fulfilling this promise, the Rainforest Foundation became Rainforest Fund and broadened involvement in all of the world’s rainforests, supporting Indigenous Peoples and traditional populations of the rainforest in their efforts to conserve their land and defend their rights.
