Ka’Way Monti, means “Tree of Life” in the local Quechua dialect, was founded with the recognition of a need to bring humanity back into balance with nature, and encourage the tremendous capacity for humanity to do good work. The mission of Ka’Way Monti is to embody holistic, healthy, sane, sustainable modes of life, and to cultivate expanded consciousness towards balance and harmony within individuals, between individuals, and between communities and their environment. 

The Ka'Way Monti School for Sustainability (KMSS) provides education focused around sustainable living and community leadership. The aim of all the programs is to encourage and support individuals to take initiative in an intelligent and sensitive way whereever they may be in the world. Many of the courses are in association with universities and provide college credit, lead either by faculty or students themselves. It is KMSS’ great delight to forge new partnerships through creating and customizing new programs to fit your educational needs and experiential desires.

We focus on supporting and cultivating the capacities of the local indigenous communities which we partner with. The aims include assisting the two village schools with volunteer teachers, providing resources for the schools and village lead projects, finding employment opportunities for villagers that are self-inspiring, and encouraging a diverse and sustainable local economy within, but also beyond, tourism.
