Sixto helps manage and maintain the Choquecancha primary school greenhouse. Ruben took this photo of Sixto in action, harvesting some giant cauliflower last week. His enthusiasm and hard work keeps the students involved. He works above and beyond to make sure the greenhouse looks good all the time too. We value the enthusiasm of community members such as Sixto who take pride in ensuring the continued success of the school greenhouse projects. Next year, we hope to work closer with Sixto, giving him even more tools for innovating and advancing the school greenhouse project alongside the students of Choquecancha.

I was fortunate enough to be able to visit Peru through the University of Vermont last May and it is an experience I will always be grateful for. Because of... read more Andean Alliance, we had an authentic Peruvian experience that allows tourists to visit in an immersive and educational way. Andean Alliance clearly has strong local partnerships; and for me it was important to know that they have stake in the local community, and that they truly want to have a positive impact. I highly recommend spending a day in the Sacred Valley with AASD, not only is it absolutely beautiful there, but you will have fun, meet great people, and learn a lot as well!
