We began working in Huathua Laguna in 2017, and in 2018 a former community member was elected the new mayor of Quiquijana District. Knowing about our projects, parents from Antisuyo quickly petitioned the new mayor to bring Alma to their community, and together we did just that in 2019.

In Antisuyo we run an after school project with primary school students that reinforces state mandated academic content and promotes critical/creative thinking through dynamic projects based 100% on the students’ indigenous culture and values. The elected leaders of the community and the long-time school director are all women, and they are committed to fulfilling the responsibilities and communication Alma asks of the community members and schools we work with.
