Additionally, we are in the process of starting up our own foundation and have already begun working on the following projects that will eventually be channeled through that foundation:
- Titilaka has funded and organized a weaving project, including workshops by Klaud, a Lima-based fashion company that promotes new methods to use the traditional Andean textiles. More than 50 locals have already participated in the free workshops allowing them to use their ancestral skills to create contemporary products and generate a new income.
- We also support the local school by, for example, funding an English teacher and offering workshops and lecture series to improve vocal skills. We will eventually be offering internships at Titilaka.
- Finally, Titilaka helps our neighboring communities to advance technologically by identifying their needs and then helping them with the implementation, from potable water to WiFi.
