THE STORY:

For the 4th year in a row the Children of Peru Foundationhas offered a Match: What we raise online in 30 days they will match up to $15,000.

April 2 we are kicking off our fundraising campaign to support Phawarispa– the FIRST and ONLY vocational training program for young adults with intellectual disabilities in the region of Cusco.

Our 2014 Indiegogo matching campaign successfully launched this new program and we fully furnished the new building. Take a peek at our video from last year to see our success.

This year we have 20 students in attendance and 9 staff members working in the three established work modules:HOUSEKEEPING, RESTAURANTS and HORTICULTURE.

Over the next 30 days we will be featuring our students and our goals for 2015-2016. Your donation during this time is vital!

“I want to work in a tourist restaurant so I can save for my future” – Marly Cardenes (18) Phawarispa student.
