Mission Statement

La Comunidad que Construimos (The Community We Build) works with international volunteers to teach kids self-confidence and empower them to end poverty in their communities.

Description

We run after school programs centered on developing positive self-image and confidence in kids by celebrating their Peruvian history and culture. Each week our kids (ages 8 through 12) design lessons and activities to teach our international volunteers about their country, sometimes teaching about the history of the Incas, sometimes how to dance salsa or surf.

Teaching gives our kids pride in their country and in themselves. They focus on what they love about where they come from, and this empowers them with a positive self-image. We envision a world full of beautiful prosperous communities, and we believe those communities start with kids who are proud of who they are and where they come from.
