Mosqoy 5 SPONSOR!

Mosqoy 5 Students

This year’s Mosqoy 5 students have been selected, and are ready to move into Casa Mosqoy and start their studies as soon as they secure funding. ‘Mosqoy 5’ refers to the ‘generation’ of each group. We couldn’t be more pleased that we’re currently working towards sponsoring our 5th generation of students, making a total of over 60 students overall who have been supported by the Mosqoy Andean Youth Fund.

Please share this page, and circulate this list far and wide, as most of these students need help to fund their upcoming post-secondary education.

Raul Mamani Melo

Study: Tourism

be good citizens by keeping our culture & Quechua language.

I was born on April 21st, 1995, in the community of Huilloc. I live with my parents and 2 brothers and a sister. I studied in my primary school 50617, in my community of Huilloc from 2001 to 2006. Then I started my secondary studies in Ollantaytambo District School in 2007, which I finished in the year 2011 in a satisfactory manner, because there was no secondary in my community. Now that I have finished my secondary studies I want to continue but my parents do not have enough money so that I would be able to study.

I would like to study “tourism” to help my community by bringing more tourists to my community so they know how we live, work crafts, agriculture and how we raise our animals. Thus my community brothers will know how to earn their money and sell to the tourists so that they will have money. In this way, they can provide education and good nutrition to their small children and be good citizens by keeping our culture and our language of Quechua.

By learning English, I can teach English to the rest of my brothers of my community and so that they can sell, in English, the products and crafts that were made in our community.

I want to form my own company and generate jobs.

Hi, my name is Itayoshara Guillen Castillo and I was born on March 4, 1995. I am 17 years old. It has been one year since I finished high school and I am presently studying tourism in the National University of San Antonio Abad in Cusco.

My biggest wish is to know a lot of places, to be able to know cultures, traditions and customs of different people and I know that I am going to achieve this.

Carlos Yasmani Abrill Guevara

Study: auto mechanics, communication science and graphic design

I lost each and every one of my uncles to alcohol.

I am Carlos Yasmani Abrill Guevara and I was born on August 1, 1994 in the city of Urabamba.

I am 18 years old. I spent my childhood with my family, but not with my father because he abandoned us (mother and my siblings) when we were very young. But we were able to overcome this and now we are very happy and united. We are able to be outstanding together to overcome any problem. On the other hand, I am very proud because until now we are living harmoniously since I can accept the past and I can remember the beautiful moments which I was playing with my siblings and mother which are now very special for all of us. I also remember sad moments in the past when I lost each and every one of my uncles to alcohol.

Now my five siblings (Rene, Juana Mercedes, Karina, Diana, and Jose Luis), my mother Gabina and I feel more united than ever, even though three of my brothers moved away for work. I am the second to last of my siblings and I want to study to help my family and so be able to repay the efforts and sacrifices that my mother gave for me. Also to be able to be a source of pride for her and my family which has suffered a lack of money as well as the love of a father, which was much needed especially for the three youngest. Because of this, I want to apply myself and study the careers that i like such as auto mechanics, communication science and graphic design. I know that I will be a pride for my family and for my community and if they need support, they know that I will be there to help them, for my family as much as my village.

Now, I know that will achieve it and all will be proud!

Thank you very much!
