Congratulations to Sustainable Preservation Initiative’s Director of Latin America, Dr. Luis Jaime Castillo Butters, who has been named the Peruvian Minister of Culture! On July 8, 2019, Dr. Castillo Butters was sworn in by President Martin Vizcarra in the nation's capital city of Lima.
We inaugurated an exciting new project at the site of Pachacamac, Peru last month. Twelve women and men, ages 18-22, will be giving bicycle tours of the almost 5 square mile monumental site. We developed an intensive business and bicycling training program, including site knowledge, customer service, bike maintenance, first aid, and management.
We’re thrilled to announce a new partnership with the National Geographic Society! We will conducting several of our sustainable development and capacity building projects in Peru in association with the GlobalXplorer project.
