We bring the Latin airs, original as a tone of service to Life, taking care of Pachamama based on the principles of Well Living (Sumak Kawsay), this is our horizon, the utopia that moves us is to awaken love, compassion, reciprocity, fraternity and that all beings live to their fullest, integrating all aspects of life and all of our capabilities.

Our Goal


Our projects aim to awaken solidarity to life, seeing the Earth as a living organism, without borders or divisions. That is why they are concentrated in different areas but with a great common base: sowing the consciousness of Life, of Pachamama.

Thus, according to these principles, we seek to work with:


• prioritizing life;

• the differences that complement each other;

• understanding that we are nature;

• defense of identities;

• knowing how to eat, drink, dance, work;

• strengthening family farming and protecting seeds;

• live well, not better;

• recover Nature;

• exercise sovereignty.


• Promote and participate in actions that protect, value and strengthen original cultures and  guarantee their influence in society;

• Develop new environmental, social, cultural and human proposals to society;

• Experimenting in our Peasant Communities to find solutions to the current demands of society;

• Carry out actions that spread the culture and education of values connected to Pachamama's Consciousness;
