Our Name


Our name, Pachaysana, is the fusion of two Kichwa words into one: Pacha means World (Earth, or the continuum of Time & Space) and Aysana means Balance. The name is indicative of our mission and vision: we seek to balance processes in education and development so that one feeds the other and vice-versa; we seek to balance local empowerment with global education; and we seek to balance our destructive tendencies with our creative energies.
