The philosophy of the Kogi Tribe has been the inspiration behind One Coin For Life after Luciano and his family spent time with them in April 2012. The Kogi’s main aim is to raise awareness of the need to care for Mother Earth through the world and to promote social consciousness.

The Kogi’s themselves do not need financial support as their community is thriving and they are proudly self sufficient but they do run social programs to help the most vulnerable indi- genous communities, mainly orphans and abandoned elderly, and run reforestation, health, training and nutrition projects in the Sierra Nevada.

“Luciano and his family have become my family. We are united with the deepest roots and we accept them into the Busintana with love and we will work together to form a new awareness” Mamo Mejabin, Ijka tribe
