Current ongoing projects
Free English lessons for local children
English is a skill which can open doors to infinite opportunities for children in Peru, a country which strives on tourism. However, English is not taught well at schools, and private English tuition is something which many children cannot afford. We have been giving English classes periodically since 2010. In 2016 we built a space to be used as a classroom in the house and since then, we have been offering regular, free English lessons to school children.
Giving work to local women
Through our family-run artesania business Wiñay Maki, we support local women by giving them embroidery work. We especially try to support mothers from rural areas and single-mothers.
Supplying school equipment to children in Millpu
Since 2018, we have been supporting the children who live in Millpu, a small country village, by donating essential school equipment to the children.
We hope to set up a community canteen in our property to provide food for children and elderly people who are in need of support.
Life education programs
On top of our English classes, we want to start educational programs for children to teach them about issues such as health and the environment.
Accommodation for students from rural areas
There are young people from the country side who want to come to study in Ayacucho but are unable to do so as they cannot afford to live in the city. We want to start providing free accommodation for these young people to enable them to study here.
