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 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.
CESAL works on the “Huachipa Educational and Social Development Center for children and adolescents” program which seeks to foster the educational and social development of children and their families.
The ESPRO Foundation project Pro-Niñas, offers care, accommodation, upkeep and medical care for abandoned girls in El Callao, Peru. It also offers them education so that they have the opportunity to get a job and thereby break with the vicious circle of family poverty.
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.
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 APES Misiones Rurales project seeks to bring high quality education to 532 primary and secondary school students in villages in the Peruvian sierra. The project’s goal is to help them escape from their traditional subsistence farming of basic produce.
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.
The “Warma Yachay” Social Sports School project has a comprehensive and interdisciplinary educational approach combining learning and sports.
The “Warma Yachay” Social Sports School project in Peru aims to train 230 children and young people aged between 6 and 16 who are at social risk in the town of Huachipa, through sport.
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 “Semillas, Aprendiendo en familia” project, run by the Asociación Hogares Nuevo Futuro, works to ensure the proper development of children in the most deprived areas of Lima through supporting their families.
The scholarship program of this organization offers 20 students with talent and potential, but without financial resources, the possibility to study in private schools. The academic scholarships cover the annual tuition fees, monthly school expenses, books, school supplies, uniforms, medical insurance and extra-curricular activities.
Fundación ESPRO runs the Pro-niñas project, an initiative carried out at Casa Hogar Nazaret, a center which cares for young girls who have been abandoned in the suburbs of Lima in Peru, by offering them accommodation, support, protection and affection.
The work focuses on: prevention, technical occupational capacity building for economic empowerment and the acquisition of life skills, and capacity building of local institutions.
