Our main goal and focus is to promote activities of knowledge and skills sharing and to stimulate cultural expression. Traditional knowledge is an important resource not only for local communities but also for humanity, it is a source of intangible and material wealth that needs to be protected and promoted. On the other hand, other forms of modern abilities and information are important to help this intercultural exchange and to stimulate socio-cultural development of the world’s population. We want to generate a dynamic of social responsibility and trust among society.
Our vision is to promote social welfare through interactive education, art and a variety of cultural expressions, sports and healing. It is an effective and free way to provide access to values, goods and services. Through these activities we encourage children, young people and adults to be proud of who they are and give them tools to research their own culture and folklore and explore the ethnical, linguistical and biological diversity of their territory, which for its biodiversity has been declared “capital of the biodiversity of Peru”.
Mediation is a tool that “bridges the gap” between differences in order to have positive and successful communication. KOSHI provides a unique opportunity to enhance cultural understanding and knowledge sharing. We offer a variety of training and workshops to teach more about the Amazonian worldview, about their medicine, smiles, traditions and sense of time. On the other hand, we give you an opportunity to express your personal vocation and skills. We also use theater, cinema, photography, art, dance, sports, literature and technology as a tool to stimulate cultural manifestation and to find new forms of expression and community involvement.
Through alternative forms of communication and mutual stimulation we seek to recover local history and reinforce identity, talk about the specific problems of the Peruvian Amazon jungle and reverse issues of social exclusion. This is a collective effort to create and produce ideas, values and practices.
