Access to education in rural areas of Peru is notoriously problematic. The indigenous district of Ccorca is no exception. Children from as young as 7 have to walk for up to 8 hours each day to get to and from school. Inevitably, they arrive too tired to concentrate and many give up on their education altogether.
Our Educational Boarding Houses give the k disadvantaged children in Ccorca a place to stay near to school. Instead of walking between home and school, this time is spent on academic support classes, extra-curricular activities, personal development workshops and community outreach projects.
