The project is a self-financed initiative that was born in March 2013 as a pilot in the annex of San Jose De Challaca, a small rural community in the department of Huancavelica about 4 hours from the city of Ica. A project full of dreams and a beautiful way to go.

Given the need for lack of intervention of organizations that help the development of these communities with high poverty rate, problems of family violence, alcoholism and the concentration of NGOs in the capital, in departments such as Cuzco, and the Amazon of our country, also the lack of intervention by local governments and after having touched many doors decide to do something on their own and believing in solidarity as a way of life

From 2013 to date it has been growing with many difficulties, but it has also been a path of much learning and the family has been growing with project coordinators, communities and volunteers. Now the project extends to the city of Ica where there are many people who have migrated from different communities of Huancavelica, Ayacucho etc, looking for a better future, but sometimes it is not like that. In our different programs we seek to benefit children / youth, adults, older adults because we believe that the human being is important at every stage of their life and always an opportunity all deserve.
Everyone can join and share our mission and vision together to co-create new projects with social impact.

MISSION:
The empowerment of people in situations of vulnerability, empowering their abilities and skills for self-management, health and sustainability of a better quality of life as well as the use of the various resources that are counted and promoting an active community with proposed solutions innovative

VIEW:
Consolidate as a replicable social project, oriented to cover unresolved needs.

The project does not seek to give charity to people, we seek to provide tools and meetings to co-create sustainable ventures that can be managed by them, developing their creativity, exploring and improving their talents, their personal and spiritual growth since childhood, valuing and treasure the experience of adults and seniors in an active way; Give meaning to life.

To sustain the project, we seek self-financing and generate our economic resources. In our house in Ica we are offering accommodation services, tours, Peruvian cooking classes, organic farming, bicycle rides, etc. but above all a family atmosphere. If you are going through Ica and do not have much time to volunteer, booking these services with us is also a way to collaborate with the project. You can spread it among your friends or traveling people.

We look for people, committed, with initiatives that can help offering from their skills and professional knowledge, with labor, administrative activities or promotion and dissemination of the project.
