Back in the Sacred Valley

June 1, 2011

Aaron and Adam meeting up with Professor Alfredo Ortiz in Lima

Just got to Cusco and I couldn’t be more thrilled about it. We finally graduated and
got our masters degree, so now we can really focus on developing our organization
this summer and after. Its pretty crazy to think about what we are able to
accomplish out here in Peru while simultaneously juggling a full graduate school
experience… hopefully that’s a good sign for what’s to come next.

I have a good feeling about this summer. We’ve got the high school students coming
out to volunteer for two weeks and help construct the greenhouse that they raised
over $6,000 for, we’ve got a team of 5 MBA students coming down to help us figure
out the best way for our organization to generate revenue, and we’ve got a total of
15 graduate (or recent graduate) students coming to work on greenhouse projects,
an NGO network, gender empowerment, and whatever else comes our way!

We’re going to do our best to document what we do via blog, video, and other types
of social media, so if you’re reading this right now, stay posted for what should be an
incredible and impactful few months! ~Adam

Our mission is to provide and implement sustainable programs and projects in collaboration with the indigenous people of the Sacred Valley of Perú in an effort to improve their lives and reduce poverty in a culturally sensitive and appropriate manner. Furthermore, we work to support local NGOs with whom we have shared values using the skills and tools we possess.
