Participants will learn how a rural community suffers and recovers from natural disasters amidst the normal conditions of extreme poverty. Students will learn about economic development in a rural setting and those factors that keep a community poor.  Participants will visit communities in the Canyon which have been innovative in drip irrigation techniques for low-income farmers and also spend time in the Andean countryside as well as explore the site of Choquequirau, a ruin similar but much larger than Machu Picchu, and much less visited.
