"Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world" - Nelson Mandela
We believe Education and Health are the two most important gifts for any child. We are committed to providing books and school supplies to children. We are grateful and proud to have sponsored a school in Pinchollo since 2003. Pinchollo is the smallest and most remote village in the Colca Valley. Every year each child gets a list of school supplies needed to attend school. This list consists of subject books, notebooks, cardboard, paper, crayons, glue, scissors basic supplies to start school. Most families in the rural areas live from their small farms giving them barely enough to eat, let alone afford a list of school supplies. If you want to help these children build a foundation for a better future, please talk to us.
This Christmas with the help of a group of Volunteers and generous donors we were able to provide school supplies to 150+ children. We also provided school materials for the classrooms, sports supplies and a sun cover for their playground. The village is located at 3400 meters above sea level. The sun at this altitude is very strong causing the children´s fragile faces to chap and sunburn. It was a day full of joy and gratitude coming from all sides. Thank you for your support!
