  • Description


    We are part of a small community in Potolo and are looking to develop tourism in the area. To do so we need to create the infrastructures to welcome them.

    We have different projects to promote local work, develop local economy and avoid people to leave the village and keep his culture.

    You will learn and practice Spanish with locals. Yolanda is an English, Spanish and Quechua translator.

    Also you will enjoy the local culture, that is very specific from the area. The Jallq'a culture is one of Bolivia's ethnic and is known for his knitting (representing the underworld) and his traditional clothes.
    The area of Potolo is also known for his history.

    Also, around of potolo theres a lot of treking to do, dinosaur trails to see and cave paintings of ancestrals culture of Bolivia.

    Indeed it is the place where Tomás Katari, the leader of an indigenous rebellion against the Spanish rule, was murdered.

  • Help


    Right now we need architects to draw a project to a house guest, a posada or a place to receiv turists. We need some creative person to help us to develop the idea. We are waiting to receiv the materials to building the hotel, so until that, we need help to design and project the place of our dream.

    So, now I just need a person to draw the hotel projecy, after that we can start with the materials.

    We need help to start designing and building a greenhouse and all its hydroponic system too. We dont already have the materials and wait to receiv any moment, so we need some one to design/draw the project.

    So, if you are an architect, an engineer or you can draw this project, you are welcome! :)
