Asociación ONG Añañau is a nonprofit and non-governmental organization that was founded in December 2014 in Cusco, Peru. It works with children and youngsters between 4 and 18 years old, who live in extreme poverty and unstable family situations in the district of San Jeronimo, a suburb of Cusco. Since January 2015 the organization is recognized as an official NGO in Peru.

What is our goal in the long run?

Peru is a country of big differences. The entire economy is growing, but at the same time the poverty and the inequality increase. In Peru the large half of the population lives in poverty. One in five persons in extreme poverty. A lot of infants, children and youths in Peru also still don't have access to proper education. Too often children and youths from deprived families and ethnic minorities are lost out of sight. This is what Añañau wants to change, in order that they also receive the same opportunities as others!

Because we believe in the power of good education as a diving board to a better future, Añañau is primarily an educational project.

Through guidance during the homework and learning while playing, we stimulate the development of the children and we try to create new opportunities. We motivate children to develop their talents and offer help where they face difficulties. Through helping the children believe in their own possibilities and abilities we want to guide them to a better future and an independent life.

Therefore Añañau offers assistance on 3 areas: education, health and the overall social-cultural development."

Working together with the parents and the community is very important to us. Through workshops, a literacy program for mothers and other educational activities we attempt to extend their involvement and participation and we work around empowerment.

Añañau works with children and adolescents in two educational projects in the city of Cusco. On both sites, there will be taken action against climate change through education. This year the students of both projects will be participating actively at a workshop about the SDG's and climate change and there will be held a poster competition. Next to this with the local school Luis Vallejos Santoni of Huancaro we will also be rallying against climate change and the importance of taking care of the environment by organizing a protest march through the streets of Cusco.
