Project Peru Receives Official O.N.G. Charity Status in Peru

Lima, Peru, April 20, 2001 – Project Perú, Inc., a non-profit aid organization focused on the welfare of Peruvian children, received acceptance of its application for O.N.G. status in Peru and is thus treated as a publicly supported organization.

The respected O.N.G. status – Peru’s version of the U.S. 501 (c) (3) – provides the recognition as a charity organization across Peru and allows Project Peru the necessary credentials to work more efficiently with corporate sponsors, individuals, municipalities and other O.N.G. groups and furthers its mission to provide for needy Peruvian children, their families and their communities.

Project Peru’s flagship project is the development of a park, playground and soccer field in a neighborhood known as Asentamiento Humano Portales de Puruchuco in the City Of Ate Vitarte, just outside of Lima. Working with the community and the local municipality, Project Peru is providing a positive place for children and their families, a place they can call their own. In addition, the organization also focuses on a number of other community improvement projects in the same area targeting schools, medical facilities and other community areas.
