Through her work and with support from the Amazonia Indigenous Women’s Fellowship Program, Sharmaine is focused helping the women in her community find financial stability and freedom.

The Amazonia Indigenous Women’s Fellowship Program, an initiative of Our Future Forests–Amazonia Verde project, supports Indigenous women leaders and the key roles they play in local, national and regional conservation decision-making processes.
