  • Language Day at Casa Mosqoy

    I’m excited to finally have my official Mosqoy blog debut, as I’ve now been a Mosqoy volunteer for almost two years. Up until this April, I’ve known Mosqoy from the Victoria side, as the Administrative Manager, taking care of office and organizational details (not much interesting to blog about there). Since April, however, I’ve had the incredible opportunity to live and work in Peru as the Quechua Language Empowerment Fellow. For the past few months ...

  • Camille – TCP Victoria: The end of winter in Victoria.

    The last few weeks have been rainy and gloomy in Victoria. However, we had a few nice days so I went to Beacon Hill Park, Dallas Road and Mount Tolmie with friends to enjoy the beautiful landscapes surrounding Victoria. It is at times like this that I realize that I am very lucky to live in such a nice place. Except for the rainy weather, I really like this city, I hope I will have ...

  • AYP: Global Stewardship in Action!

    Mosqoy would like to apologize for this tardy blog post—our Program Manager, Kristina, was on a well-deserved vacation for the first half of the month and was unable to post before leaving. She is back with all kinds of news from Casa Mosqoy and the students in Cusco!

  • Reflections from Katheryn: September’s Dye Workshop in Huaran

    My first dyeing workshop in Peru was a great experience, and as promised I would like to share with you some of the real action behind the weavings – the arduous process of dyeing with natural materials! The workshop I attended was held in Huaran, a small community in the middle of the Sacred Valley. The work took place in an open area, just off of the highway. Only in Peru can you host anything anywhere! The ...

  • Leah in Cusco Part XVI: Photo shoot!

    We had an awesome photo shoot over the weekend with the help of a volunteer photographer. Jose Luis and I had great fun modelling the textiles, and the Huaran house makes a lovely setting.  We have many truly beautiful textiles, and it's great to have some shots that do them justice. A picture's worth a thousand words, so without further ado, I'll let the photos speak for themselves.... Enjoy!
