Amantani

Helps bridge the gap between home and school for children living in Ccorca, a Quechua district in southern Peru Amantani’s mission is to help the children of Peru keep their smiles. Since 2008, we have been working to bridge the gap between home and school for children living in Ccorca; a small Quechua district nestled high in the Andes of Southern Peru. Our Boarding Houses help over sixty children who used to walk up to four hours to get to school. By staying with us during the week, children gain an average of over 700 hours each year. This is time that they can now spend on improving their prospects for the future. Contact Important links to resources
