Our mission is to help the children of Peru keep their smiles.
We work to bridge the gap between home and school for children living in Ccorca; a small Quechua district nestled high in the Andes of Southern Peru.
We are essentially working to combat two problems:
- The Physical Gap: a 4-hour walk between home and school
- The Educational Gap: an irrelevant curriculum that alienates indigenous children
We manage three boarding houses which bridge the physical gap for 64
children, who previously walked up to 8 hours daily to get to
We help schools offer a relevant education, ensuring children don’t lose touch with their community,
their families and ultimately themselves.
