About us

Intiwawa is a dynamic and young organization with the goal of fighting poverty in the slums of Arequipa, the second largest city in Peru. Founded as a German-Peruvian organization in 2007, we now consist of an international team volunteering in Peru and in Germany.

Our goal is the integral development of the children and their parents and a sustainable improvement of their living standards. To achieve this goal and fight the symptoms of poverty, Intiwawa carries out projects in several areas:

Education: Homework support, English classes, computer classes
Health: Dentist project, healthy nutrition, personal hygiene
Strengthening sociocultural values: Social workshops and cultural workshops
Strengthening environmental values: Recycling, planting plants
Projects with the parents: Parent’s School, Knitting projects for the mothers

In order to make our goal reality we require as much support as possible, from volunteers, donors, and sponsors.

Thank you very much for your valuable support!
