The association Manos Unidas, together with Fundación MAPFRE, has launched this project which seeks to empower women at risk of social exclusion and victims of prostitution and sex trafficking.
The collaboration from Fundación MAPFRE enables four projects to be carried out in Lima and Huachipa. The territory which is now the Republic of Peru was the birthplace of the Incan empire, the last great pre-Columbian civilization of South America. Peru is rich in mineral resources and biodiversity with a great variety of climates and landscapes. Following the convulsive decades of the 70’s and 80’s, the last decades have been marked by a period of relative political and social stability.
The “Warma Yachay” Social Sports School project has a comprehensive and interdisciplinary educational approach combining learning and sports.
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.
UTEC (The University of Engineering and Technology) collaborates with 9 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.
Fundación ESPRO runs the Pro- niñas project, an initiative carried out at Casa Hogar Nazaret, a center which cares for children who have been abandoned in the suburbs of Lima in Peru by offering them accommodation, support, protection and affection.
The Da un Chance Civil Association, through their “Da un Chance Scholarship Program”, offers 20 children with talent and potential but with limited means the chance to go to private school.
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.
