Palca-Let's create a welcoming and colorful organic store
Description: The "Kaypacha Kankunapa" project was carried out due to the concern of the members of the Brigada to improve the living conditions of our community brothers. The branch of Palca of BVBP launched the long-term project a year ago in order to create a local production center in the community of Huaruyoc. The objective of this center is to generate an economic income for the community, working at the same time in an inclusive manner in order to involve the poorest part of the population, and using organic products from the area in order to promote a local development that respects the environment. In particular, we work on :1. Eco-craftsmanship: (compilation, transformation and production) 2. Agroindustry: (collection, selection and transformation) 3. Ecotourism (valorisation, inventory)
Type of Work: The volunteers will carry out various activities, not only the organization and decoration of the store, but will also take part in workshops about ecotourism and cultural exchange • Preparation of a mural in the store in order to show cultural identity of the area • Construction of high relief tablets in mud as a tourist attraction • Work with children in the creation of a Bio-garden aiming to improve the food supplies • Participation to production and handicraft workshops (Transformation of organic products, manual skills) in order to promote economic improvement for the people of the area.
