Our mission is to help develop self-sustaining agriculture, health, and education initiatives in remote, impoverished highland communities above Peru’s Sacred Valley.   In order to support over 2,500 vulnerable children, elderly, women and men we employ a community-based, holistic approach and encourage partnerships with community members that empower them to make the initiatives thrive.
