    Sol & Luna – Relais & Châteaux


    Colegio Intercultural Sol & Luna is a multicultural educational project for the children of Urubamba with an inclusive in philosophy which guides them to full integration in a global world. Currently over 200 children from ages 3 through 17 years old are educated through this program. We offer personalized education in a multicultural environment with children of different origins.

    The languages spoken around our community are Spanish, Quechua, and English, which are taught in our school not only as a means to communicate, but also as important tools that will help us understand and learn from the different cultures that influence us daily.

    The program of the Sol & Luna School is executed professionally with a staff of skilled teachers who fully embrace our educational concept and have a real connection with our environment.

    Listed on this page are the specific needs requested by the community project(s) so you can choose exactly what to pack for a purpose and express your gratitude to the local community with the supplies you take them. If you prefer, you may reach out directly to them to inquire about items which may be available for purchase locally. Arranging visits to community projects is beyond the scope of our mission. If you wish to visit a project, contact the participant and they can let you know what is possible.

    Candy and balloons are not on the needs list as they are harmful for the children and the environment for the following reasons:
    • Few of the children benefiting from these projects have access to toothpaste, toothbrushes, or a dentist. The candy promotes cavities.
    • The balloons once they become deflated are a choking hazard for local wildlife.

    Instead of taking candy or balloons, use that space for additional requested supplies, as they are priceless.
