Equal opportunities for all children

Gotas de agua provides education and psychological support to children and their families in disadvantaged areas to create the basis for a better future


Gotas de Agua is a Swiss not-for-profit organization with a branch registered in Peru

Gotas de Agua means drops of water in Spanish. We believe that if enough of them land on fertile soil, beautiful things will grow

Issues we deal with

We work in the suburbs of Lima addressing the lack of educational opportunities and care taking facilities for children of poor families. Domestic violence, drug abuse and bad nutrition are further issues we deal with.

Child education

In 2021, a total of 257 children were taken care of in our kindergarten for children age 3-6 and our day care facility for children age 1-2. We do this in close cooperation with the Peruvian Ministry of Education.

Psychology department

Our psychologists work with the children, their families as well as in a neighboring secondary school. Requests for this support increase continuously.

Nutrition & Effective management

We support a group of women that initiated a local kitchen to provide food for the poorest. After giving them initial funding, the women get help and training to manage the kitchen on their own.

Help people to ultimately help themselves
