Quechua Benefit had a big year in 2017! Relive our biggest achievements with us from January to December.
Kathy McConnell, from Canada, was on the annual Quechua Benefit Peru Tour this November. We were in Arequipa about to begin our adventure! We started with a visit to Quechua Benefit’s Casa Chapi school in Arequipa where our secondary students who have graduated from Casa Chapi in Chivay live.
The QB team is working hard to make this the best Christmas for the Casa Chapi kids. Help the children get everything on their wish list!
Nestled in the heart of Peru’s Sacred Valley and only one hour from Cusco, we recently discovered the Apulaya Center for Andean Culture. Apulaya is a small but fascinating place that allows visitors to learn about traditional Quechua culture through Andean music, textile arts, Quechua language, and indigenous cultural studies.
Quechua Benefit was recently recognized for our transparency with a Gold Seal on our GuideStar Nonprofit Profile!
