About the project
Our little school was founded in 2004 in Cusco. We receive more than 60 kids aged between 5 and 15 years daily to provide them with an alternative education based on love, respect and creativity. We offer the following workshops: tutoring, music, dance, English class, computing, games, art, etc. Then, we gather in the « Círculo de amor », a space of love and expression where we sing, meditate, share our ideas and talk about the theme of the week. Finally, we get into the different family groups according to the kids’ ages and we work on the emotions, the theme and we prepare the Friday show.

About the homestay
The homestay is located in Lamay, a picturesque town only 50 minutes away from Cusco. Our Eco Village is in a ravine surrounded by Apus (mountains) and crossed by a silver river. In our magical place, the Pachamama (Mother Earth), Taita Inti (Father Sun), Yacu Mama (Mother Water) and all gods and goddesses gather together to smile and remind every human being that we are part of a big family. Our place is dedicated to experimenting and providing sustainable forms of human development, through education, permaculture, agriculture, health, nutrition, art and meditation.
We welcome volunteers, solo travelers, groups and families, and we also provide spaces for programs, workshops, conferences, seminars or events with a positive and concious framework.
