We support children from marginalised Quechua families in accessing education, helping to stimulate social development for Peru’s most disadvantaged communities. In line with our vision of a world in which indigenous young people have equal opportunities, all our projects seek to help young people unlock their full potential. We do this within the framework of our key guiding principles of reciprocity (ayni), interculturality and participation.
Our first Boarding House was founded in 2008. We now manage two Boarding Houses which help over sixty children get the education they need.
Meet My World
Every two years, we work with a group of young people to produce Meet My World - a participatory film campaign that has travelled the world.
During the school holidays each year, we open our Boarding Houses to over 120 children who participate in our educational Holiday Courses.
Born out of our Arts & Crafts workshops, our Ethical Trade project has become an important source of income for many people from Ccorca.
As well as running classes for young people in Amantani's Boarding Houses, we also work with local schools to deliver ICT classes.
