Cody & Danitza
Residential Managers of the Pura Vida Shelter

As residential managers of the Cusco shelter they administer the day to day operations and live at the shelter.  They are passionate about the privilege to work with the young women of Pura Vida as role models, mentors and surrogate parents.  Working with Pura Vida allows them the joy of seeing the daily progress and positive changes.  In addition to their full-time positions at the Cusco shelter, Cody & Danitza are actively involved in online language instruction.  Inspired by working with the beautiful young women of Pura Vida who are all native Quechua speakers, they started http://languageheritage.com.  Language Heritage uses the proceeds from popular language classes to promote, preserve and revitalize endangered languages such as Quechua.
