We give support to offer opportunities to its population
Fundación MAPFRE collaborates to carry out various projects in Peru. The territory where the Republic of Peru is located was the cradle of the Inca Empire, the last great pre-Columbian civilization in South America. It is a country very rich in mineral resources and biodiversity, with a great variety of climates and landscapes. After the turbulent 70s and 80s, the last few decades have seen a period of relative political and social stability.
Through the “Miles de Sueños” program, Kusimayo fights anemia, malnutrition and illiteracy among rural children in Puno, by involving teachers and mothers.
Through the socio-sports school “Wama Yachay”-EDSWY, whose focus is educational and comprehensive, sport becomes a training strategy that promotes social skills and values, promotes the personal and social development of participants and their families at social risk living in the communities of Nieveria, Jicamarca and Cajamarquilla de Huachipa. We work with the Fundación Real Madrid and CESAL on this initiative.
Together with Mensajeros de la Paz, we work towards the comprehensive development of children in Peru
The purpose of the project is to improve the quality of life of boys and girls between 6 and 12 years of age by providing care and support in the educational, psychological, social, health and nutrition areas, while mobilizing the commitment of families and the community.
The girls who come to Casa Hogar Nazaret come from homes with no resources and the majority of them have suffered abandonment or neglect. In this centre they find lodging, food, clothing, protection, education and healthcare and, most importantly, a home in which to grow up.
Misery is often linked to a lack of opportunities. The CESAL organization works in the Huachipa area to offer children a balanced emotional and educational development.
The Misión Huascarán Educational Program works with children in particularly depressed rural areas where reading comprehension and mathematical-logical learning rates are especially low.
In a violent and marginalized environment, the Asociación de Hogares Nuevo Futuro works to prevent child abandonment and achieve a healthy family and school setting for children from Chorrillos in Peru.
UTEC (The University of Engineering and Technology) collaborates with students with academic potential and financial difficulties, who receive financial support to attend university, thereby enabling them to have an impact on their surroundings and their reality through science and technology.
The work focuses on: prevention, technical occupational capacity building for economic empowerment and the acquisition of life skills, and capacity building of local institutions.
Giving someone a chance means giving them an opportunity, and this is precisely what the Da un Chance civil association offers 28 children from underprivileged backgrounds in Lima, Peru, helping them gain access to training to become future change leaders in their communities.
