I just rode my loaded bicycle through a very challenging trail in bad weather, in order to donate solar lights to Molulo (a remote community which can only be reached by foot or horse through an ancient Inca Trail)!

UNFORTUNATELY my beloved Fujifilm broke (after 3 years of faithful service for this Project) and I'll need HELP to replace it before my next trip!!!

In less than a month I'll be cycling at Peru (for 3 months), in order to donate family portraits & solar lights to remote Q'eros communities.

The Q’eros people are known as the wisdom keepers of the Andes. Considered to be the “último ayllu inka,” or the last Incan community of Peru, the Q’eros strive to preserve and promote their indigenous ethnic and cultural identity... and has been designated by Peru’s Ministry of Culture a “national living cultural patrimony” for the continuity of its ancient Andean traditions.

The remote villages of Q’eros are located between 12,000 & 16,000 feet above sea level in the snow-capped Cordilleras. Despite the harsh conditions to which they are exposed, and a history as targets of discrimination & marginalization, the Q’eros people endure. 

For this trip, I'll be partnering with Utah non-profit Heart Walk Foundation who had been working with the Q'eros for more than a decade!!!



Please pledge as much or as little as you can. If not, it would mean enough to me that you even read this, shared or just follow my journey :)

After returning to Cuzco to get 2 wisdom tooth removed, I was able to get back on the bike to ride the Asungate Traverse & Rainbow Mountain and I'm heading towards Bolivia in order to donate more solar lamps (@mpowerdinc), water filters (@sawyerproducts), and printed family portraits to remote communities!!!

Your support enables me travel further and reach more people!!!

I just rode a pretty tough ancient Inca Trail, in order to donate solar lights at Molulo, a remote community up in the mountains, which can not be reached by motorized vehicles
