Who Are We

Miriam Silva – Partner

I have the indigenous nationality and I am from the Baré ethnic group. I love Amazonia, the place where I was born and always lived. My goal, working in partnership with Braziliando, is to preserve the natural beauties surrounding my magical environment that I am lucky to call home. I also wish to create opportunities and generate income for the community members through this sustainable and alternative tourism.

Ana Taranto – Founder

A large part of the population of the Brazilian Amazonia does not have access to basic health services, education and infrastructure. Being passionate about traveling and seeking to transform this reality, I decided to support families who live in the riverside communities, through the development of community-based tourism and “voluntourism” in this culturally and environmentally rich region. In this way, we generate income, knowledge and opportunities for local families, while we promote authentic, transforming and special travel experiences.

Sophie Peccaud – Intern

French student in international business, travelling is my dearest passion. I try do go on vacation as often as I can, and do my internships in foreign countries that I feel are very different from mine. I’ve for instance worked in the Caribbean, went arround Europe backpacking, met friends in NYC…  Each time, I discover a new culture and new people. Besides, I’m quite a lonely traveler, and meeting people, specially locals, is so rewarding. They help you to see the country from a new eye and give you many new opportunities!
