About the project
We are a Peruvian NGO working in the villages of San Isidro, outside of the metropolis of Arequipa, and Coporaque, in the Colca Canyon. Our team consists of motivated volunteers from all over the world working in Germany and Peru. Our goal is to fight the poverty in these villages by providing tools for the children to achieve an autonomous community, where Intiwawa as an organization is no longer needed. We want to contribute to the integral development of the children and their parents and encourage them to improve their living standards and fulfill their dreams. Another goal of ours is to fight widely spread domestic violence and child labor. To achieve these goals and to fight the main symptoms of poverty, Intiwawa carries out projects in several areas: educational support, health promotion, strengthening socio-cultural values, and strengthening environmental values.
