With our help, Andean women sell their products to international retailers of ethically-sourced handmade goods. They connect with global volunteers who make a difference. They welcome intrepid tourists into their culture. We celebrate the impact of our diverse community – the passionate volunteers, engaged donors, tourists and fair-trade shoppers that are collectively transforming people’s lives.We are currently looking for a Videographer Experteer to work within our marketing and communications department.
