Children of the Seven Rays was created in 2009 with the vision of bringing together ancient wisdom teachings from the great cultures of the world while connecting and strengthening a shared respect for Pachamama (Mother Earth) and a commitment to the next seven generations.

There is a shared understanding in the Andes that the Andes mountain range is not only in South America, but rather it travels the "spine of the Earth" beginning at the Southern tip of Argentina and Chile, traveling up through South America, into Central America and through the United States all the way up to Canada and the Rocky Mountains and completing at the Northern tip of Alaska. Therefore, Children of the Seven Rays is committed to not only sharing the deep wisdom of the Andean knowledge from Peru but also providing opportunities to bridge the medicine teachings of the North and the South. A large part of their community work and mandate is focused on children and youth and they have made a strong commitment to ensuring that the wisdom teachings of the Andes are passed down to the next generations.

Throughout the year, Children of the Seven Rays is involved in initiatives led and directed by the Peruvian communities which include contributions toward school supplies, special celebrations for the children of the community, and the distribution of warm clothing. They have also begun to partner with like-minded schools, individuals, and organizations in Canada and the United States on future community development projects.
