Simply helping.

An NGO trying to break

the cycle of poverty

in Arequipa, Peru.

About us

Intiwawa was born as a project for the prevention of gender violence and concern for child labor, ideals that founder Leonel Revilla had very much in mind. Together with a collective of friends, they began working with children in the community of San Isidro, motivated by support for low-income communities in Arequipa, Peru.

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 want to contribute to the integral development of the children and their parents and encourage them to improve their living standards and fulfil their dreams. Another goal of ours is to fight widely spread domestic violence and child labour.
To achieve these goals and fight the main symptoms of poverty Intiwawa carries out projects in several areas:



By providing educational support, Intiwawa empowers the children to seek more opportunities and to follow their dreams.
