The non-governmental organization, Thydêwá joined forces with UNESCO's International Fund for Cultural Diversity (IFCD) in 2014 to implement a project entitled "Indigenous E-books – Cultural Entrepreneurship, Indigenous Creators and Digital Culture in Brazil." Thydêwá’s proposal is to empower indigenous groups by organizing workshops where they can strengthen their skills to become creative entrepreneurs. Ultimately, the project will lead to the creation of a start-up company and the production of e-books in four languages (Portuguese, Spanish, English and French).
