“We are honored and excited to be able to support indigenous communities worldwide as they strengthen their traditional practices. I just came back from visiting Kusi Kawsay, a wonderful school rooted in Quechua traditional knowledge and culture, and I felt so inspired to see the deepness of connection to their land and the pride and force of their voices. I wish every child, indigenous and non-indigenous had the opportunity to grow up like this.” – Sofia Arroyo, Executive Director - Sacred Fire Foundation
"I have been involved in the funding of Kusi Kawsay since it was only a dream, and idea in the minds and hearts of the community in Pisac. Over the last ten years, my family and I have donated significant funds every year for this project, and have watched it grow from the dream to a reality, bringing a great education, and perhaps more importantly, a sense of pride and respect for the Andean culture and cosmovision. Not only has this affected the outlook of the students of the Kusi Kawsay, but the community at large has shown a significant improvement in the respect and self-confidence for their heritage." - Ann Beckham
