In Peru, women and children run a high risk of being anemic, which can impair children’s ability to learn in school and keep the women from caring for their families. With your help, Quechua Benefit is reaching remote villages with a proven, simple and cost-effective treatment.
Quechua Benefit supporters make it possible for Casa Chapi to offer a Summer Reading Camp to children from many different schools in the Colca Valley. In just three weeks the children made remarkable progress in their reading abilities. They gained confidence in academic as well as social skills.
The Andean Pastoralists of Peru are often women of immense talent with little prospect of lifting themselves and their children from the heartbreaking poverty of everyday life at 15,000 feet above sea level. These women are keepers of the ancient art forms – spinning, knitting, and weaving.
When you support Casa Chapi, you enable children to rise above their tragic beginnings and realize their full potential. Meet a few students who are succeeding and will be able to achieve their dreams.Number of Children at Casa Chapi
