SKIP (Supporting Kids in Peru)

SKIP believes that economically disadvantaged families have the capacity to be the principal agents of change in their own lives and communities. They offer holistic support to families focusing around two main themes: education, and social and economic sustainability. They work in partnership with families and empower them to be able to make positive decisions in their lives, in order to improve their current situation and provide the best possible opportunities for their children.

“Being part of the Peru project 2013 was an invaluable experience and one I will never forget! Teaching the impoverished children of El Porvenir wasn’t only enriching for me but also amazing, fun and an opportunity to practice teaching English as a foreign language. The weekend trips were amazing, especially trekking in the Andes – the views were breath-taking! I would love to do the project again next year and to see how our construction work and the English lessons have impacted the children.” Louisa Pielichaty, 2013 Participant
