spirit of ayni

Once a year, Carmen Pampa Fund celebrates the spirit of ayni--the indigenous custom in Bolivia of working together to accomplish a goal for the common good. Our ¡La Fiesta de Ayni! celebrates the work of Carmen Pampa Fund, the College, and the hundreds of volunteers and donors and friends who help make higher education accessible for Bolivian women and men.

This year ¡La Fiesta de Ayni! will be Wednesday, May 23rd at 6pm at St. Catherine University, St. Paul, Minnesota. (The official program will begin at 7pm). We invite our friends, donors, and anyone who is interested in learning more about our work to support the College in Bolivia to attend.

We are thrilled to welcome special guests: Dr. Hugh Smeltekop, Vice Director of the UAC-CP, and Lucia Cuno and Edgar Miranda, UAC-CP Education graduates. In addition, CPF will present the annual Spirit of Ayni award.

As always, it promises to be an inspiring and heart-warming evening. Please join us! For more information about ticket costs or to RSVP, please send an e-mail to: or call CPF's office at: 651/641-1588. Space is limited.
