Start project: 2015
In the beginning of the school year, teachers give every student a list with school materials that are needed for the school year. The total cost of school material for a child can even go up to $100. For many parents, especially for big families, this is a lot of money, so Inti Sisa decided to offer a helping hand. Before the start of the new school year, Inti SIsa bulk buys many of the materials that appear on the list like colored markers and pencils, notebooks, rulers, scissors, craft materials and many more, we also receive many donations throughout the year from tourists that bring something from home, or even better, buy materials in Ecuador to donate to Inti Sisa. We work closely with 3 primary schools in the mountain communities, in total, these schools have almost 70 students. For these schools, we provide all the necessary school material. Apart from that, we also donate school material to families that most need it in Guamote, for example big families, single-parent families, or families with no steady income. Even though we cannot always provide all the items on the list, it is often a big help for parents. At the beginning of the school year in 2019, we provided in total about 300 students with school material.
Cost: 2500$ per year
Want to help?
If you would like to bring something for this specific project, we could use colored markers and pencils, notebooks, rulers, scissors, sharpeners, ballpoints… Please do not buy notebooks at home, unfortunately we can´t use those because schools here have very specific requirements when it comes to notebooks.
We would like to emphasize that all kinds of contributions are entirely optional and that you should not feel obliged to buy or bring something. Many visitors mentioned that they consider it a missed opportunity to only hear about the project’s needs during their visit. For this reason, we would like to share this information with you.
Train Ecuador was voted the best tourist product outside of Europe! Tren Crucero or Train Cruise won the Wider World Project by the British Guild of Travel Writers. The Tren Crucero, which runs from Quito to Duran and vice versa, opened to the public on the 4th of June 2013. This is really a great award for the country of Ecuador and for tourism in general. By taking the Tren Crucero you can experience Ecuador like never before as you pass through many beautiful landscapes and indigenous zones with stops along the way. Inti Sisa Art Guesthouse also offers the chance to take Tren Ecuador to visit a section called Devils nose. The journey offers amazing views and a chance to explore the beautiful Ecuadorian landscapes. For more information you can send an email to email@example.com
