It is important to make this great indigenous culture visible to the world with the collaboration of volunteers and local community.

• Promotion and media coverage of the Pujllay festival in Tarabuco.

• Eco construction work in the field.

• Visiting places of alternative tourism in Cochabamba, Sucre (World Heritage) and Tarabuco.
