Minimum Fundraising Commitment: $2,800
Location: Calca, Sacred Valley, Peru
Project: Sacclio Reservoir and Agricultural School
Community Partner: The Andean Alliance for Sustainable Development
Community and Project Description:
In the community of Sacclio, an informal agriculture school and demonstration farm has been spreading an organic agricultural revolution for over a decade. Locally created and run, the Nina Cusiyupanqui Family Farm provides agricultural extension classes and workshops in a manner that aligns with customary methods of education found in Andean Communities.
In partnership with the Nina Cusiyupanqui Family Farm and the Andean Alliance for Sustainable Development, we will help support small-scale farmers and agricultural development. Our collaboration will result in the expansion and improvement of the school’s infrastructure through the building of classrooms, kitchen, and bathrooms, thus allowing for increased program enrollment and smoother facilitation of the workshops. The project may include the building of beds, desks and tables, installing water and electricity, painting, and much more.
