Why we do what we do?

As many already know, I was born and raised in one of the poorest countries of South America, Bolivia. Ever since I was little I saw first hand the daily challenges that the poor face to survive.  I am one of the few people that has been blessed with opportunities of education, shelter, safety, love and even a promising future. Too many people in my country live in despair as a result of poverty.

I always knew I had to do something but never knew where to start until now.  It starts with Pugoka, creating opportunities for one or a few at a time. Through Pugoka I want to create awareness, support local artisans and raise funds for projects that could change these people’s lives. There is so much need and too many things to do and the results and opportunities we can create together are endless.

Please help me share and make the world aware of our mission to create change!
