  • 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.

  • Aide


    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! :)
