We are currently supporting a kindergarten in Arequipa, Peru. They have asked us to help them with fundraising so that they can improve their kitchen facilities and also add a dining room which will also be used to support older children after school and give them somewhere to concentrate on their homework. The children are often from single parent families who are working but for a low income and need kindergarten to care for their children while they are at work.

Volunteers are able to visit the project and spend time volunteering by contacting Traveller Not Tourist, a volunteer organisation in Arequipa, Peru.

The Trustees and Members of Pachawawas are passionate about upholding the rights of children and providing people living in poverty and/or difficult circumstances with opportunities to create a better life for themselves and those around them.

The projects we work with now, and those we may get involved with in future, allow us to transform these ideals into realities. By focusing on individual projects we are able to help the projects really meet the needs of the children they support.

We aim to help projects that are run by local people for local people.
