Helping Hands Cusco was founded in August 2005 .
Between 2005 and 2007, we invited children at our house to help them with their homework, in 2005 we had 7 children, in 2007 we had 25 children too much for our living room. However, not all children who attended the courses, also actually went to a school. This was a frustrating fact, because important time got lost. And so far the Peruvian government didn’t officially recognize Helping Hands Cusco as a school. The idea of formalizing Helping Hands and building an own school started growing.
With the help of people of good heart, we got the following things:
- One school with 6 classes
- Baby alpaca wool production
- Carpentry workshop
- Dance and Music workshop
- One place for poor children for living and studying
Here you have all the images bout all the development in 12 years of work:
