Quinara is about 45 kilometers south of Vilcabamba and is similar to Vilcabamba with businesses and residential communities. It has a more modern-type Elementary school and has several buildings and classrooms, a large concrete playground and assembly area with basketball and soccer goals. ACF has contributed 5 computer systems to the school in past years. Due to lack of funding, the school was forced to drop its computer teacher and internet service.

ACF provided the school with a much-needed water filtration system when it was found that the children had bad bacteria in their bodies from the river water which is their source of drinking water during a local health examination.
