Who we are

Intiwawa is a dynamic NGO with the goal of fighting poverty in the slums of Arequipa, the second largest city in Peru. Founded as a German-Peruvian collaboration in 2007, we now consist of an international team of volunteers. Our goal is the integral development of the children and their parents in our communities and a sustainable improvement of their living standards.
