The idea behind Mirasol Project is simple: To support the children of communities in Munani, Neque Neque and Mallkini in Puno with their education through the Mirasol School, with the sales of the Mirasol Hand Knitting Yarn Collection and donations from friends and other contributors.
We are proud to see the achievements of these years of work to build the essential infrastructure for the project; see the children enrolled in it; see how they are using the facilities we equipped for them; and, most importantly, to witness how they are improving their well-being, education and living standards without losing their roots and identity.
