Welcome to the Nourish International, Miami Chapter's Giving Challenge 2017! Our goal this year is to raise $10,000 to send project interns with our partner organization, MOCHE Inc. (www.savethemoche.org), to Trujillo, Peru. As was said by the creators of MOCHE, Inc. itself, "MOCHE, Inc. is a 501c3 non-profit organization dedicated to improving the standard of living in impoverished communities, preserving archaeological sites, and promoting research and education on the rich cultural heritage of Peru." Our 7 project interns will be working with both local volunteers and others traveling with MOCHE, Inc. to build sustainable bricks made of recycled water bottles filled with trash from the surrounding villages. With these bricks, our interns with be building a local kindergarten for the children in the area. Help us make a lasting impact on poverty!
