By now you have probable heard about our Cyber Sustainable Project in Perú. We were promoting it last month as well as during our Latism Conference in Houston. Thanks everyone who stopped by and visited our booth.
This Project had been postponed from its original date for several reasons but now it’s a reality and we’re more than ready to go ahead with our plans. People of this small town of Patacanchain Ollantaytambo, Cusco– Perú, eagerly await us!
During these last months of continuous communication with them, we have become friends and family and we want to share with you all the emotional message they sent to the Latism family just after hurricane Sandy.
“Estimados amigos. Esperamos de todo corazón que estén muy bien, bueno sabemos que fueron golpeados por la tormenta y esperamos que no le haya afectado a ustedes. Reciban las energías más positivas posibles de parte de los niños, niñas, padres de familia, pobladores y docentes de la comunidad campesina de Patacancha”
The relationship we have built with them is amazing. They are our Latism familia we can’t wait to meet and help soon in Peru. However, we can not help them enough without the support of our Latism family here in the States, in other words, without your help.
This community is supported financially by selling their beautiful textiles and turismo vivencial. But what is turismo vivencial? What kind of crafts or textiles do they make? And most importantly, what can we do for them from here?
If you want to be part of it and help us make this a successful project, come and join us this Thursday!
