On Etsy since 2016

Revitalizing Quechua culture. Empowering Quechua women.

Mosqoy, meaning “dream" in Quechua, is a charitable non-profit organization that started in 2006 with the goal of empowering Indigenous communities in the Peruvian Andes to overcome adversities relating to unsustainable tourism and development. We run two social enterprises and one charitable program to achieve this goal:

1) The Mosqoy Youth Program, which provides promising Quechua youth with opportunities for post-secondary education so that they can compete in their communities' new job sectors and become positive community leaders in the future.

2) Mosqoy Peruvian Textiles, which supports women weavers to ensure that Quechua textiles embedded with generations of cultural knowledge can continue to thrive and adapt.

3) Mosqoy Field School, which provides travellers and students opportunities to cultivate awareness so that consumer relationships in our increasingly connected world can manifest as positive and fair.
