Educate and support children regardless of social background
Our mission is to set up sustainable, locally run institutions, that offer education and psychological support to children and their families in disadvantaged areas in Peru.
The first years of a child’s life are essential for the emotional well being and are the basis for their future development. One of the biggest challenges with poverty is the self-perpetuating cycle often caused by lack of quality education in the first years of life.
Many parents, some of them single mothers, have to go to work every day and have no safe place to leave their babies. Currently, the project site does accommodate some youngsters thanks to the involvement of three of the community’s mothers who take care of them as much as they can.
In 2013, we started to develop our psychology department. Last year, we hired a professional and experienced psychologist to support our kids and their families, which are growing up in a community where conditions can be very difficult.
