From a post in Changemakers by Sonya Bradley who works for Country Walkers, the company that arranged our Peruvian trip:
"For six years, Country Walkers, our guides, and our guests have supported the small Andean community of Patacancha in Peru. The primary project goal was to construct a dormitory for the children who attend the local elementary school. To date, the project has raised more than $13,000 and continues to grow. The school children of Patacancha are enjoying a two-story, five-room dormitory with facilities for 20 students. Complete with a kitchen and electricity, the dormitory also serves as a Community Center. The project began in 2001, when a Country Walkers tour visited with the people of Patacancha."
