Social activities, environmental work and Summer Solstice celebrations with the local people of Incallajta, December 15 - December 25, 2013.
In the month of December, the ancient Andean culture celebrates the Summer Solstice. This is a very important month in the peasant agricultural cycle because of the beginning of the rainy season in the Andes and the Amazon. It is in this context that we organize a workcamp for cultural and social work in the rural community of Quechua Incallajta.
The volunteers will be involved in different activities during the project: • Preparing and running awareness campaigns. • Help building a compost and cleaning the heritage site. • Conducting workshops on waste recycling with students in an Incallajta School. • Participation in the preparation and celebration of the Summer Solstice Ritual. • Visiting the eco-archaeological tourist site Incallajta and exploring its coexistence with nature.
Accommodation: Volunteers will be hosted at the school in the rural community Incallajta, Cochabamba Department.
Location: The project is located in Incallajta, Pocona Township, in the south of the department of Cochabamba. Incallajta is located 150 km from the city of Cochabamba.
