Jam of the Andes
Come enjoy an evening of extraordinary musical talent at the first annual Jam of the Andes featuring the Manabi Salsa Band. A 12-piece salsa band, a colorful presentation on conservation efforts in a remote mountain village in Ecuador and free beer will make for a wonderful evening!

EWB-Denver's seven year investment with the Quechua communities of Malingua Pamba have helped to develop reliable irrigation and potable water supplies, control rampant erosion and much more.
