End of a great year in the Andes

The Three peak challenge
The Three peak challenge

As we draw to the end off another great year in Otavalo, Ecuador, we can reflect on massive advances achieved in 2011.

Initiatives to fund secondary education such as 'Plan Moo' (cows producing milk, cheese and other products) and 'Plan Cuy' (Breeding and selling Guinea Pigs, a popular delicacy in Ecuador) have proven a huge success which put the emphasis on community participation whilst empowering local people.

New timetables and a new community centre have also been introduced which have brought huge benefits to the program.

To raise funds for the project a team of hardy project staff and volunteers scaled three impressive peaks bring in amazing funds to support the children and communities we work with. Next year another impressive challenge is already planned which will see the challengers taking in the impressive Cotopaxi volcano. The name sends shivers down the spine of many!

Thank you so much to everyone who has shown support for this project in 2011, we look forward to more progression in 2012 and will keep you all updated.

Have a wonderful Christmas and New Year.
