We are also involved with other projects in the surrounding area, these are a few images from Tastayoc where they recently had a very exciting day opening the new toilet and shower block! The project is run by Path of the Heart and Carlos Gibaja Tapia and his brothers. They are based in Ollantaytambo where the restaurant profits feed 200 children every day and help provide the basic needs for these lovely people who welcomed us to their village. They were thrilled with the gifts we took and even treasured a carrier bag! One of our Fair Trade suppliers Namaste, kindly donated childrens t-shirts and cardigans.
