Theme:Juntos sembrando y ayudando”, which means “Planting and Helping Together”
Description: In the Andes mountains of Peru, students from Margarita Muñiz Academy embraced a new culture during their week of service. Working alongside farmers from indigenous communities, our team spent long, back breaking hours, harvesting potatoes on an organic farm and building close friendships with the local families. They shared stories of their families, pride in their cultures, and learned traditional dyeing and weaving techniques from the Peruvian women.
