Vanessa Sequeira: Sailing Along The Amazon Rivers
December 22, 2006
As some of you may remember, Vanessa Sequeira, a dear friend of us and colleague passed away in Brazil last year while doing her thesis research.
Vanessa joined the ACA family in 1999 dedicating herself to work with Brazil nut producers and setting thus the foundations of our now fully established and successful Brazil nut Project (PCC). As a way of remembering Vanessa, our partner organization in Peru, ACCA, built a boat and named it after her. The “Vanessa Sequeira” is now sailing along the Madre de Dios River in the Amazon basin.
