Marketing and Communications Strategist

The Marketing and Communications Program includes everything from social media
management to creating flyers.

Where We Work 
Awamaki works in the town of Ollantaytambo, pronounced O-YAN-TIE-TAMBO, and the surrounding communities. Most people refer to the town as Ollanta (O-YAN-TA), which is easier and quicker to say! Ollantaytambo is situated between Cusco, the capital city of the Incas, and Machu Picchu, a U.N. World Heritage site. A half million tourists travel through Ollanta on their way to Machu Picchu every year and many
tourists stop in the town to visit its own ruins and attractions. Ollanta is in the Sacred Valley, a beautiful and lush valley at a mere 2800 meters above sea level (or 9100 ft), but surrounded by imposing, almost vertical, mountains. Other towns in the Sacred Valley include Urubamba, Pisac, and Calca. Volunteers and interns typically live in Ollantaytambo when working with Awamaki.
