Global change starts at home. Our school programs aim to inspire youth to invest in local solutions and empower their efforts toward a socially just planet. As our world becomes increasingly globalized and interdependent, it is crucial for our youth to understand the impact that these trends are having in other parts of the world. Our aim is to bring Mosqoy’s key messages into an educational context; students of all ages can raise their awareness and expand their capacity to engage with empathy in the changing world around them.
The generous students from Battalion Park's Grade 3 class
came together to fundraise for Mosqoy (2013)
Mosqoy team members visit various communities in Canada to host lectures and workshops in elementary schools, high schools, university classes, and interested community groups. These presentations highlight the macro issues of cultural and social justice, as well as economic and environmental issues, which we then connect on a micro level to Mosqoy’s work in Peru.
These topics can include:
Indigenous Quechua culture: weavings, language revitalization, mythology, worldview
The vicious cycles of cultural degradation and economic instability
Responsible tourism and ethical consumption
The benefits and challenges of running an NGO and social enterprise
What is our role in community “development”? Critically examining how to work in a conscious and integrated way when working with marginalized populations, providing a hand-up rather than a hand-out
We work with groups to customize curricula that complement learning requirements or group interests. If you would like to host a presentation at your school or community group, please email us at email@example.com.
