  • Description


    My name is Paula, I am from Colombia. I am studying anthropology in the University of los Andes in Bogotá. 10 years ago my parents built our home, that home is probably one of the most important thing of our family. Few months ago with my siblings we decided to make a project where we can help people from the zone, support their work and also promote organic food, so we decided to create an eco restaurant where we will sell healthy food. and we will buy all the products from people of the area, moreover the restaurant will have a small market with organic products. Also in the house we want to make a cultural project where people can talk about current issues, enjoy a presentation of colombian culture, watch art projects; we will like to make a kind of a cultural center. However, it requieres a lot of work so we are asking for your help.

    The house is located 30 minutes away from Bogotá and there are plenty of things to do in Bogotá, it is a big city. Also, near the house there is a mountain so you can hike and enjoy the nature.
