Equitable Connections


In 2018, we started working with the Province of Pallasca, a rural community in the Peruvian Andes 800 km from Lima. Based on the premise that local, historical and cultural identity is a community's first resource for their development, we have observed a decline and loss of this wealth. This is illustrated by several things:

We have begun to raise awareness among the local inhabitants, especially the new generation, of the importance of preserving their heritage. To this end, we have familiarized them with the collection and organization of information and the use of digital tools that this community could use in a near future in order to develop activities related to alternative tourism.

Our goal: to open the way to an economically and ecologically sustainable activity.

The continuation of the project consists in the production of a documentary that will present potential cultural routes built in collaboration with local actors.
