BENEFITING: MANOS UNIDAS INTERNATIONAL INC
I am Heidi Klein, a graduate student at the University of Washington earning my masters degree in special education and applied behavior analysis. My challenge is to fundraise $5,000 for the first and only private, nonprofit special education school in Cusco, Peru called Manos Unidas. Upon reaching my goal, I will be traveling to Cusco to volunteer for two weeks at the school!
Manos Unidas’ mission is to improve the quality of life of individuals with developmental disabilities in Cusco, Peru, leading to successful inclusion within the community.
In Peru, children with disabilities are the most vulnerable, segregated group of children. An estimated 4% of children with disabilities receive an education. Manos Unidas started in the living room of a small house, with one student with significant disabilities. Now, Manos Unidas have educated over 150 students and employs twenty-four local professionals.
DONATE NOW, and help children with disabilities in Peru achieve a higher quality of life.
