Welcome Back to Lima
Well we made it safe and sound to the vibrant metropolis of Lima. A big group this time: Andrea and David Ranalli, former MP and current board member Frank Valeriote, Videographer Levi Pounds, Fashion Designer Faren Tami. And yours truly.
Notwithstanding a long red-eye flight, the team arrived energized to meet with our arranged ride at about 3am today to take us to our hotel. A simple place to rest our heads after long days of running around town meeting with businesses, vendors, and expanding our media presence.
We are looking forward to a week packed solid with revisiting business-women we have provided funding for over the years to help tell the story of their evolution. A big part of this trip will also be expanding the projects in to new territory, to new people. The team will be flying north to Cajamarca to visit a highland community and see what can be done there!
It is not about supporting businesses, but rather helping them support themselves.
