Pete The Monkey


Quest4Change works in Africa and South America, fighting poverty and environmental destruction. We are a small focused charity working with project partners in some of the poorest areas, helping those who need it most. Over the last 13 years our supporters have raised over £1.3million, 100% of which has gone to the grassroots projects we work with. One of our main aims is to relieve financial hardship and poverty in disadvantaged groups, working especially to improve the lives of children. We achieve this in a wide range of ways, through improving health and educational infrastructure in Malawi and Tanzania to enriching the lives of children living in urban slums in Peru and Brazil through the provision of sporting and cultural activities. We also help construct basic home for some of the poorest families in Peru and work to protect the environment through our conservation and animal care projects in Peru and Bolivia. By supporting Quest4Change you will help empower and enrich the lives of real people. We currently support projects in Kenya, Peru, Tanzania, Bolivia, Malawi, Brazil and Swaziland.

“One can take the ape out of the jungle, but not the jungle out of the ape.” Frans de Waal

Hi, thanks for visiting Pete's page! Through Virgin Money Giving, your donations will be quickly processed and passed to the monkeys.

Pete the Monkey is a cult figure of the ape world. He first shot to fame when a YouTube video of him washing the dishes became an international web sensation.

Together with the monkeys, we have created a unique project to fund the rescue and rehabilitation of more capuchin monkeys like Pete... by letting you sponsor their viral videos!

The Project

Pete the Monkey is a fundraising project, inspired by one special monkey, with the main goal of raising a total of £20,000 in order to complete the construction of Park Jacj Cuisi, Bolivia’s premier wildlife rescue and rehabilitation sanctuary. This animal sanctuary will be primarily dedicated to releasing capuchin monkeys from captivity back in the wild.

Now here's the deal: every £1000 earned, a new monkey video is released!

...And your name and website link will appear underneath the video you are sponsoring! (Just enter your name and URL when you donate.)

The Issue

Bolivia is the unfortunate home to South America’s largest illegal wild animal trade. Animals in Bolivia are often kept illegally, exotic animals are traded on the black market with little care as to their well being. These animals often suffer from abuse, resulting in permanent disabilities, sometimes leading to death. Comunidad Inti Wara Yassi strives to put an end to this.

The Charity

The Pete the Monkey Project is fundraising for Comunidad Inti Wara Yassi, a Bolivian non-profit organisation, enabling the organisation to complete a new wild animal sanctuary, Bio Park Jacj Cuisi. CIWY’s mission is to raise awareness and fight against the illegal pet trade by rescuing and rehabilitating (when still possible) capuchin monkeys and other wild animals, that have fallen victim to trafficking and inhumane captivity.

Abroad, CIWY is represented by Quest4change, processing the money straight to the construction of the sanctuary.

Thank you so much for your donations and support!!!
