Apus Peru have a sister NGO called Threads of Peru www.threadsofperu.com with whom we work directly in support of their work; “..connect(ing) the world to handmade textiles of Peru helping to preserve ancient craft techniques and empower indigenous artisans.”
Threads of Peru work with great commitment and dedication in their continued efforts to create a sustainable international market for the amazing textile products created by weaving communities in rural Cusco.
It seems we are not the only ones that consider Threads of Peru (ToP) a worthy organisation and positive contributing force in Cusco. The folk down at The Sacred Valley Brewing company (Cerveceria del Valle Sagrado) also think so too! http://www.sacredvalleybrewingcompany.com/about-us.html Their team consists of: Alex Ball (New Jersey, U.S.), Juan Mayorga (Peru), and Joseph Giammatteo, the Brew-Master (Maryland, U.S.).
On the last Saturday of every month the brewery holds a party to celebrate their wonderful beer and 20 percent of beer sales go to a non-profit of the brewery’s choice. ToP was chosen for March, so naturally we headed out to the Valley in support of our friends and partners at ToP and to enjoy a couple of pints in the process!
It was a really great turn out, the weather was perfect and the beer flowed freely all in support of a good cause! In addition to the monthly party, the tasting room (or tap room) is open to the public from Friday to Sunday in the afternoons or by special arrangement.
