BENEFITING: WAVES FOR DEVELOPMENT

EVENT DATE: Jul 06, 2013

Andrew Hamilton

THE STORY:

In July 2013 we will be spending two weeks in Lobitos, Peru as part of a volunteer service with WAVES for Development.
 

WAVES for Development aims to create life-enriching experiences in coastal communities through Education programs. Specifically their programs, including English, Swimming, Surfing/Beach Education, Environmental studies and Cooking, aim to develop the youth who participate into healthy & empowered adults.


A recent survey estimated that 90% of the Lobitos population (180 families) derive some income from the fishing industry, with the average income well below the poverty line. This is an enormous reliance on one industry, WAVES looks to develop skills that will provide income streams for the local people beyond fishing. Additionally in Lobitos education is not given priority. National statistics (www.inei.gob.pe) report that less than half of the youth complete high school.

WAVES relies on volunteers, contributors and charitable donations to help deliver these programs to the youth of Lobitos. We are both looking forward to this experience and assisting the people of Lobitos through education and sustainable tourism. This is where you can help, a donation of any size would be much appreciated.
