Will you help launch our young adults in Peru?
There are seven youths who need to be in Cusco to complete their education and launch their adult lives. We’re hoping to raise enough money to cover their expenses for a full year.
Can you help?
A message from the Director, Viviana Martinez:
We support this group of youth into becoming healthy, happy, free, functioning adults able to build a life that allows each one of them to break the cycle of poverty, to be able to be active participants in the transformation of our society. This can only be attained by providing emotional and material support without developing dependency.
The youths we have moving to Cusco, and their areas of study, include:
- Zenobia – Pastry Chef
- Ermelinda – Chemical Engineering
- Belisario – Economics
- Luis – Chef’s School
- Ivan – Marketing
- Marlitt – Biology
- Rusbel – Architecture
Each youth is expected to hold a part-time job and will be responsible for their personal expenses (toiletries, clothing). Base rent and many houses and kitchen furnishings have already been funded.
We’re looking for funding now to complete their rent, food, transportation, education, enrichment expenses, and counseling/spiritual support services for a full year, some house and kitchen furnishings and appliances are still needed.
The plan is to transition these youth into independent living once they complete their education and hold stable jobs. A foundation to allow for further empowerment to achieve their individual and collective visions for the world.
Please help us and be part of this Youth Coalition for a better world, modeling indigenous and ancestral ways: mutually supportive and sustainable solutions to a healthy evolution of our Youths’ lives and communities. Help these kids!!!
