Participants in the Chimborazo province engage in social enterprise and business leadership training alongside local youth in the Andes Mountains. The incredible landscape presents one of the most extreme climates of all the AMIGOS projects, with elevation varying from 9,000 to 13,000 feet. All communities in Chimborazo are highly organized and have a precise system for decision making. Some of the communities are indigenous and speak primarily Kichwa.
