Our Vision

A Peru in which young people from all backgrounds have the capabilities to access equal opportunities of high-quality education and fair employment.

 


OUR MISSION:

Since 2008, Amantani has worked with young people from indigenous Quechua-speaking communities in the Andes of Peru, enabling them to access high quality education and opportunities of fair employment. Driven by a commitment to social justice, we work with young people and parents to create highly contextualised educational projects that enable young people to develop the capabilities they need to access equal opportunities.


OUR VALUES:

  • Youth Participation: we ensure young people are heard & can make their own decisions.
  • Interculturality: we celebrate diversity and the young people’s cultural heritage.
  • Strength Perspective: we focus on individual talents of each young person.
  • Reciprocity: we create horizontal relationships with the young people and their parents.
  • Individualised Support: we create highly tailored solutions for each individual participant.
