Mission Statement

Mosqoy works towards global sustainability and resilience by empowering local culture. We work with the Quechua population in the Andean mountains of Peru, a place that has been devastated by unsustainable tourism and development but that is home to amazing local leaders who are revitalizing their art and culture while maintaining a healthy, holistic, and spiritual connection with the land. We believe in empowering local communities through international solidarity and networking, sharing stories of celebration, struggle, and strength.

Description

Mosqoy was founded in 2006, and is a registered Canadian charitable organization and Peruvian AsociaciĆ³n Civil that works in remote communities of the Peruvian Andes, offering opportunities for economic development while nurturing their threatened indigenous culture. It operates two social enterprises: Mosqoy Peruvian Textiles and Mosqoy Field School, which collectively fund its three main programs: 1) the Q’ente Textile Program, which supports Indigenous communities by revitalizing and supporting textile traditions in the Peruvian Andes; 2) the T’ikary Youth Program, which offers promising youth of the region opportunities for post-secondary education; and 3) the Mink’a Knowledge Exchange Program, which aims to raise global awareness and responsibility in schools and universities.
