About us

Helping women never doubt that they are Valuable & Powerful

We are a social project driven by volunteers. We work directly with the Andean populations in a situation of poverty and exclusion promoting self-development based on the improvement of their education, organization and self-esteem. We are inspired by the Andean ideals of mutual support, reciprocity and respect for nature, our work is in the field, we have a form of participation and horizontal organization, volunteers and population.

Stand up to the Pandemic:

For this year 2021 we will have the challenge of facing the many problems and consequences caused by the pandemic in our communities and vulnerable population, Peru was and still is one of the countries that were most affected, not only in the health aspect, but also a hard blow to the economy and the rights of people who have the least, help us in this social cause that will help improve and have a positive impact on the lives of the people who need help most.

Events and other activities:

We organize many experiences of cultural exchange, trips and non-commercial excursions, in addition to experiencing culture in a direct and experiential way.

A fairly direct way of voluntary social work in populations with real need of support and help in the Andes of Peru, we keep our distance from accommodation or commercial tourist businesses where everything is motivated by money

Our partners
I had a great time working with the programm. You get to really know the peruvian live when you are there since Huancayo is not touristic which is really nice. The work with the kids was amazing. They are really nice and are also very patient with you if you don't understand.

Volunteering with the Project is an intense cross cultural learning experience. The needs are varied and large among the families in the program, yet smiles and genuine personal relations are the norm. Frank and the other "tichers" are highly respected and warmly received.

I was a volunteer with the Minka project, until you do it you don't know how good this experience is. You are going to live for a while in a place very different from yours you notice many sensations that make you think you help people who need it but you receive very human lessons
