About

"Silvia comes from a small community on the Inca Trail leading to Machu Picchu. Her community is in a beautiful natural area, but unfortunately suffers from challenges like alcoholism, domestic violence and poverty. There is also no option to access secondary education in near her home, so in order to attend secondary school she was chosen to participate in the Sacred Valley Project in the town of Ollantaytambo. Sacred Valley Project provides housing and leadership programming to girls like Silvia. Silvia dreams of one day owning her own restaurant and opening a shelter for abandoned children from in and around her community. To accomplish these dreams she applied and was accepted to Mosqoy. She just began her studies in Hotel and Business Administration and continues to build her leadership skills. We are excited to see Silvia develop into a leader for positive change in her community. “Si te caes, levántate y seguir viendo tu futuro.” “If you fall down, get up and continue to look towards the future.”

Hola, Silvia!

I hope you are doing well! I own a small voice instruction and music studio in New York, and in collaboration with one of my students, we were able to host an online dance and music class last weekend to raise money for the rest of your education! We were so moved by your profile and believe in you and your future. Please continue to put in your hard work and dedication, believe in yourself and what you're able to do, and continue spreading those gifts and talents. You have our love and support! <3

With love,
Annie, Anna and Evelyn

Gracias a los donantes por apoyarme para seguir con mis sueños, estoy muy agradecida. Para terminar mi carrera solo me falta un año y medio, ya empecé con mi ingles y estoy trabajando ya en hoteles.

Thank you to all donors for supporting me and [helping me] to continue [fulfilling] my dreams. I am so grateful. I have only one year and a half left of my studies and I recently started studying English [at the Khipu Institute, where I study]. I have also started working in a hotel.
