The Exchange

Out nonprofit organization is based in the Mantaro Valley in the central Andes of Peru. Our aim is to educate ecological conscious children. We work with a group of children who live in vulnerable situations. We organize activities where the children have a chance to be in contact with nature, while they learn first-hand biology as well as their own history and enjoy learning new skills like rock climbing, trekking, and farming.
