Marjorie and Stephen Kafoury will host the Friends of the Q’ero Community event Monday, June 7, 2010 at Andina restaurant.

Green Empowerment supports Friends of the Q’ero Community of Peru in building a new school. Once completed, the school will serve as a learning and community development center for the entire Marcachea community. Home to 57 families and a total of 376 inhabitants, the current school in Marcachea is in deplorable condition with inadequate school supplies, run-down latrines, and unacceptable living quarters for the teachers.

There will be a presentation on the Q’ero people, last living descendants of the Incas, followed by details about the project and time for questions.
