Our 11th Anniversary

The month of May 2019 marks our 11th Anniversary! Following on from some spectacular celebrations in 2018 for our 10th Birthday, this year didn’t disappoint. Parents and children came down from Ccorca to join us in the Youth Hub, located in the city of Cusco, for a day of activities and celebrations.

The young people organised games for us all to participate in whilst a group of parents and team members prepared the traditional celebratory dish of local potatoes, spaghetti, beetroot and Guinea pig.

Emeterio (leader of the Parents Council) shared some heart-warming words which reminded us all how impactful the project has been over the years and how committed the parents are to support their children (now young adults) who are in pursuit of further education and fair employment.

“It was a special month at Amantani as we celebrated our 11th birthday alongside our UK Director, parents, team members and all the young participants of our programmes. Our greatest gift has been to verify how committed everybody is to continue working towards our goals and we look forward to celebrating many more years together.” Rodrigo (Exec. Director)
