Simply helping.

An NGO trying to break

the cycle of poverty

in Arequipa, Peru.

About us

Intiwawa was born to socially empower low-income families in communities of Arequipa which face high levels of child labor and domestic violence. Founder Leonel Revilla, together with a collective of friends, began working with children in the community of Mollebaya to support local families in improving their quality of life through education. From there, Intiwawa grew and developed new programs, in response to the needs of the local communities.

Our Projects

Our vision is to provide tools for the children of today to achieve an autonomous community tomorrow, where Intiwawa as an organization is no longer needed. We contribute to the integral development of the children and their parents, giving them the tools to fulfil their dreams through education.

To achieve our vision and break the cycle of poverty in Arequipa, we focus our projects in the following areas:

Education

Through our educational programs, Intiwawa works to bridge the gap in the children’s academic growth and support their personal development. At the same time, we work with a group of mothers from the local community in a training program which empowers the women and families as a whole, through education.
