“In the conflict between the rich and the poor, not to take part does not mean to be neutral but to take place on the side of the powerful ones” (Paulo Freire)
Centro de promoción social Yanapasunchis CEPROSOYA
We would like to draw your attention to the fact that you will be visiting a very poor zone of Peru, the Andes, where, for example, 40% pregnant woman are undernourished and 41% of them are illiterate.
The Hotel & Mirador Los Apus has been supporting Yanapasunchis since 2001 with donations of sheets, pillows, blankets, bedspreads, computers and cash money (see photos).
Yanapasunchis is now about to finish their building of a “school” for agriculture techniques, textiles producing etc… , which is located in Lucre, about 20 km from Cuzco (see photos).
So by staying at the Hotel & Mirador Los Apus you will be indirectly contributing to help Yanapasunchis and its communities (8 communities in Layo, 6 in Lucre, 3 in Pisac, 7 in Acomayo as well as the ever growing belt of Cusco city).
