Google Earth Outreach is Google's program for donating and supporting non-profit organizations spreading the knowledge of global awareness since 2007. Google Earth Outreach offers online training on using Google Earth and Google Maps for public education on issues affecting local regions or the entire globe.
In June 2008 a training was given to 20 indigenous tribes in the Amazon rainforest, such as the Suruí, to help them preserve their culture and protect their rainforest territory from deforestation.
