CELEBRATING AMANTANI’S TEN YEARS

A decade of impact.

 

2018 marks Amantani’s tenth year working with young people in the Cusco region of Peru. Ten years ago, as the ribbon was cut to inaugurate Amantani’s first project in Ccorca, we could never have imagined that we would go onto to be so well championed by the young people and their parents, nor supported by followers in the UK, Peru and all over the world. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you to everyone that has made these ten years possible. We hope you’ll enjoy taking a moment to reflect on the story of Amantani so far, as well as the impact that we have been able to make.

¡Que viva Amantani!
