AYP: Computers and Homestays
It has been a relatively quiet two weeks in Casa Mosqoy. The month of fiestas is over, the city is returning to its “tranquilo” atmosphere and filling up with the summer tourists. The Casa Mosqoy and the Mosqoy program keeps on, with Mosqoy 4 students beginning their new semesters and Mosqoy 5 continues to work hard on final projects (less than three weeks left of their first semester!). Mosqoy 3 has completed half of their four modules for their curso de actualización and the house is generally quiet during the day as the majority have found jobs or practicums, or are in class. At night, though, dinner has become a large, loud event once again.

Mosqoy would like to thank the Davis family for their generous donation of four laptops! The students truly enjoy having them, and they are always signed out. They are also going a long way for the administration of AYP and Qente, who can have specially dedicated computers for the programs. We would also like to thank our generous donor Irene from Brazil, who has also donated a desktop computer for our students. We have ordered the parts and are just waiting for them to come in so we can set up another computer station! On behalf of all the students and volunteers in Peru, a million times thank you.

We are currently planning a workshop with our partner, Threads of Peru, in the community of Rumira at the end of the month. Tourism students from Mosqoy will help develop the community homestay program. Everyone is excited about the beginning of new Kallpa K’oj projects such as these. Students have been working towards completing their volunteer service hours, as always. Eurelesis went to Huaran to assist Maggie in the monthly meeting there, and Marco hiked three hours to Cancha Cancha to translate from Spanish to Quechua for their weaving association.
