Working with the Locals


Project description

Titilaka has been working for several years with a nonprofit organization that supports communities around the lake through donations or the purchase of local handicrafts by visitors. Through its foundation, it recently created a series of projects directed at improving the economic conditions of more than 50 local families. In fact, Titilaka is funding a weaving project in collaboration with Klaud, a Lima-based fashion company that promotes new methods of using traditional Andean textiles. The project will provide free training courses for members of local communities to make the best use of their ancestral skills in the creation of contemporary products and thus have a new source of income. Titilaka also supports the local school through teaching English and conducting seminars and internships at its facility. Many of Titilaka's other initiatives involve building infrastructure that gives local communities access from drinking water to wifi.

This project contributes to the following Sustainable Development Goals of the 2030 Agenda
