We support the teachers at the Kusi Kawsay Andean School where elementary school students learn, understand and celebrate their Quechua tradition and culture according to Andean Cosmovision. They participate in cultural events in relation to the Andean Calendar with traditional clothing, dance and song and produce art and textiles in the spirit of their culture through the guidance of their Sacred Geometry. This wisdom gives them values and skills such as cultural pride, respect, love and reciprocity, self-esteem and empower them to be self-assured young leaders and change makers.
