THE STORY:

Hi!

I am going to Peru and I am going to help build an entrepreneurial school on the outskirts of Lima Peru, this school will help kids go from selling candies on the street to possibly making a living by having their own business. This school also will give students that go to it a much better chance of being successful by teaching them valuable skills that they can use. Please consider partly supporting me (financially) on my trip.

More details:

Poverty in Peru has its roots in high rates of illiteracy, a lack of essential services and inadequate agricultural resources and training. Many children leave school early to help support their families. Volunteer participants work hands-on painting walls, installing windows and doors and building fences to improve and expand educational centers for working children. These educational centers provide meals and teach students important life skills that will enable them and their families to improve their livelihoods. The host partner IFEJANT is a well-established, local non-profit agency working for the rights of women and children while providing education and support to working children.

We will be working with IFEJANT to add a 3rd floor to the Nassae School, located in Jicamarca on the outskirts of Lima. This district is populated by migrant families who have moved from different parts of the country to find work, leaving their children in the care of older siblings or other family members. Children living in Jicamarca have almost no access to public education, so the community has rallied to provide schooling opportunities. The number of families wanting to send their children to this school is rapidly increasing, and since present capacity is limited, a 3rd floor will allow for more student enrolment.

Your donation is 100% tax deductible.

Thanks for your support!
