Education
Project Peru Program Focus

Project Peru's education program strives to improve access to education for the people of Lima and the surrounding communities. As an organization focused on eliminating the barriers to opportunity for the young people of Peru, our initiatives are focused on, but not limited to the needs of children without satisfactory educational options.

What We Have Done
Project Peru recognizes the critical correlation between access to education and increased economic and social opportunities. Our education projects attempt to promote the condition necessary for both young people and adults to determine their own futures. Examples of our education program's accomplishments follow.

  • Project Peru funded the rebuilding of the Asentamiento Humano Tupac Amaru School, an elementary school in the city of Ate Vitarte. The project included the installation of a new roof, paint for the building, 24 desks and chairs, a first aid kit, other furnishings, and numerous school supplies for the five to eight-year-old children who attend the school.
  • Project Peru provided the Santo Domingo Savio School in Santa Anita, Lima with computer equipment for an education program that includes free computer classes to high school students. Currently the program includes almost 50 students participating in the program and a similar program for adults in the community has also begun.
  • Project Peru constructed a park with two soccer fields and a playground in Portales de Puruchuco. The one-acre (4,000 square meter) park provides a safe and central place for the children of Puruchuco to play and for community members to meet and enjoy themselves.

What We Will Do
Project Peru is eager to broaden its commitment to the educational needs of our target communities to include both young people and adults. To this end, Project Peru is evaluating the opportunities to support workshops for unemployed parents, to teach adults marketable skills, and to continue improving children’s environments by supporting computer and school rehabilitation programs.

Project Peru
Project Peru is a development charity focused on empowering Peruvian children through health care and education programs. The organization does so by implementing projects designed to fortify the family and community-based systems on which children’s wellness and education depend.

Project Peru is efficient, independent and accountable. None of the organization’s staff is paid, so all of our resources support program activities. The organization partners with several corporate and non-profit organizations, but is free of any political or religious interests as a 501(c)(3) organization in the United States and a designated O.N.G. charity in Peru.
