“Mosqoy” means “dream” in the local Quechua language and demonstrates our main objective: to fulfill the dreams of Quechua communities in Peru. Mosqoy is a not-for-profit business based both in Victoria, BC, Canada and in Cusco, Peru. Here at Mosqoy we do many things to help achieve our mission, but in all things we aim to promote educational and cultural rights for Andean communities in Peru.
This is an excellent opportunity for an organized, hardworking student to gain valuable leadership experience. The ideal candidate will be outgoing and detail-oriented with an independent work ethic, and passionate about the innovative work that Mosqoy is doing in Peru. This position will allow the ideal candidate to learn about social enterprises, community-based international development, and culturally responsible tourism.
Mosqoy is an international charitable organization that provides economic opportunities for rural highland communities in the Peruvian Andes, while nurturing their threatened indigenous culture. We do so through three main programs: a textile revitalization program, a post-secondary scholarship program, and a knowledge exchange program. For more information, visit our website: http://www.mosqoy.org.
The student will be working directly with our knowledge exchange program to help develop and implement workshops, lectures, and curricula relating to our Mosqoy Field School. This program focuses on educating Canadian youth about international issues relating to human rights, with specific focus on educational and cultural rights. As part of this, the program inspires Canadian youth to be more responsible travelers and consumers. Some of the student’s tasks will include the following:
