ÚNICO is a scholarship for young entrepreneurs from peasant and indigenous communities. This initiative is driven by Mauricio Acuña (Espai Epicur) who wants to combine the cuisine with agriculture, as a single communication.
In 2018, 8 young rural people were part of this initiative that was promoted by the Small Grant Programme through the promotion of Products with Territorial Identity. For six months, these 8 young people live a unique experience that took them to leave their communities, families and activities with the aim of learning gastronomy, costumer services with an innovative approach.
Espai Epicur and the Small Grant Programme want to take ÚNICO to more communities, therefore, we need to collect funds to award scholarships to more young entrepreneurs. We invite YOU to learn more about this story and make your contribution. Your donation can reach more young people who are promoting their products from their communities by honouring their flavours and ancestral knowledge.
