Children from poor families barely have access to quality education in Peru. Many children interrupt their school education to help their families make a living. By providing educational support, Intiwawa empowers the children to seek different opportunities and to escape the cycle of poverty.
The Casa Intiwawa in San Isidro is like an island of happiness that often stands in a strong contrast to the world the children come from.
As a generation, we have discovered that we can have everything but time. We sometimes feel as if we would need more than one lifetime to experience the different gifts life can bring us. One of these fantastic gifts is the sweet work of helping others.
It’s summer vacation south of the equator, which means Intiwawa transforms from an after-school program to an AM summer camp. We are currently in the second full week of programming, and are very happy to share the classes and activities our volunteers have organized for Intiwawa’s summer students :).
For most of it’s life, Intiwawa has focused its efforts and activities on the children of San Isidro. It is now our pleasure to announce a new project that will directly benefit every member of the family, no matter the age: a bakery in San Isidro!
Jakob came to Intiwawa in September 2017 and will stay until summer 2018 !
