Our educational projects

Education is a powerful tool against poverty. According to the UNESCO Global Education Monitoring Report and the Education Commission’s Learning Generation Report, education significantly influences an individual’s earnings and economic growth: 

  1. Education reduces poverty
  2. Education increases individual earnings
  3. Education reduces economic inequalities
  4. Education promotes economic growth

Unfortunately, children from poor families do not have access to quality education in Peru. Often their education is disrupted by the need to support their family. By providing educational support, Intiwawa empowers the children to seek different opportunities and to follow their dreams.

Homework support

Every day, the children receive support with their homework from our Intiwawa teacher and a team of volunteers.

English classes

Every Friday our international volunteers give English classes to the children in San Isidro and every Sunday we teach English in Coporaque.


To provide the children with different skills, our volunteers support them with tutoring.

Social education

To increase the children’s self esteem and their social skills we offer different social workshops.
