Service-Learning Possibilities in other areas of Peru

Cuzco, Ollantaytambo, Arequipa and Huancayo are possibilities. I recommend starting with Joaquin Randall and his enterprise in CATCCO. Students could learn ancient ceramic making and weaving from the weavers. In turn, we could start with environmental initiatives such as an Adopt a Street Program. We could also try to bring computers to the school in order to continue communicating all year around. Joaquin will have suggestions. He is dealing with a homestay program from Shady Side Academy in Seattle now. There are 15 high school students living in Ollantaytambo homes. I hope to find out about their experience in the future. I am not ready to deal with a homestay yet. Read details of Lakeside Global Service Learning at
