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:
