We Educate

The right of indigenous peoples to education is protected by the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, which in Article 14 states that “Indigenous peoples have the right to establish and control their educational systems and institutions providing education in their own languages, in a manner appropriate to their cultural methods of teaching and learning.”
Because of the remoteness of our territory the government of Suriname didn’t invest in many schools or other facilities in our territory. Given the Wayana Indigenous good education and information about the world outside our territory, in their own language and is, one of our main goals of the Mulokot Foundation. Also teaching our people Dutch (the formal language of Suriname) and English is a way that they can communicate with the rest of the world.
