Installing Swing Sets in the Cuzco and Sacred Valley Areas of Peru

Two years ago, several of my family members and I were in Cuzco and the adjacent Sacred Valley.  At the end of our tour, our guide and his brother–Willow and David Torres–helped us fabricate and install a swing set at a school in the hills above the Cuzco Airport.

In the 2 years since, the Torres brothers have installed 4 additional swing sets:  3 at schools in Cuzco/Sacred Valley area and 1 in the Amazon rain forest.  The 3 were installed at schools in Urco, San Jose, and Rayampata.

The swing set in the Peruvian rain forest was installed upstream from Puerto Maldonado.

In addition to the 5 swing sets installed by the Torres brothers, the Utah NGO Eagle-Condor volunteers installed one in Sacred Valley in 2015.
