At Intiwawa I am able to collaborate with local communities, empowering them to help themselves through education. Our work here is not only ethical, but also sustainable.

Intiwawa provides a safe space where children can be themselves and build up confidence to fulfil their dreams. The Intiwawa staff and volunteers as well as the community in Mollebaya, are a beautiful family you'd be lucky to spend time with and learn from.

My work with Intiwawa is one of the best experiences I have ever had. Helping is very simple, but you receive such a great reward when you see the joy of the community as they reach their goals.
