We are a non-profit organization with compassionate, ethical, and tolerant values. We are directly linked with the community, local agents in Peru, and international supporters.

We work for rural communities, children and adolescents in Peru who live in extreme poverty.

We intend to promote physical and psychological changes through intercultural dialogue and direct participation with each project member.

We do this because there is a need for ground-level, focused help. Together with the global community, we are part of the solution.

vision

Equip Peruvian youth through education to be entrepreneurial and independent, contributing to the enrichment of their family, school, and community.

mission

Transform education to offer opportunities for the empowerment of marginalized youth. We partner with communities and schools, local authorities, and volunteers.
