The planet’s ecosystems are deteriorating and the climate is changing. Thats why were making the future the cause of our present. We want to give our children the opportunity to live in nature as we did in our early years. Be able to hear the sounds of birds and enjoy their company, to grow and pick their food and to be one with nature. Thats why 5% of all income goes to the sustainable protection of the Pichincha mountainside. We also work with the community to provide them with economic alternatives based on sustainable use of their rich natural heritage, which include advanced training in hospitality, language, organic agriculture, construction, nutrition, water conservation, alternative energies, and much more.
