THE WAWA FOUNDATION


 

THE WAWA ('chlidren' for Inca dialect in quechua) Foundation aims to provide opportunities in rural parts of Peru, that seeks to help old people, youths and children most especially those in Tarma Junin on issues that particularly affect them; like health issues, social issues, economic, education, poverty and basically their well being in the community where they live.

We believe that every child should have the opportunity to attend primary school as a starting point. We are convinced that education is the best way to break the cycle of poverty for children in rural areas of Peru. It is well understood that poor uneducated children grow up to be poor uneducated adults. Children of poor families are less likely to enroll in and complete schooling because of the associated costs of attending school.

Help a child go to school in Peru.

You can get involved! Opportunities are available to sponsor a child or to volunteer to deliver school kits to children in Peru. If you would like to donate or volunteer, please contact us.

The cost of uniforms, supplies and transportation may well be beyond the means of a poor family, especially when the family has several children of school age. UN study
