After being active in charitable projects without an organizational framework for almost three years (2010 - 2012) we decided to found Jayma Kunan to help people facing extreme poverty in a more structured manner. For this step we were inspired by several trips to Perú and Moldova. We deliberately keep a tight focus regarding the range of projects we are involved but on the other hand we are trying to get more broadly involved within each project.
We would like to stress two things. On the one hand, that it is our goal that not a single donated cent is used for administration or overhead costs. All of these costs are borne by our members. This implies that every single Euro donated arrives without any deduction exactly where it is needed. And on the other hand, that we work totally independent of any organization or church. Our conviction is borne of the fact that we are truly fortunate regarding our personal living situation and circumstances and that we perceive it as our obligation, moreover our duty, to help those in need.
we are glad to be able so say that we have finished our work in Villa el Salvador with the help of all of you. The kids now have a fantastic kindergarten incl. a great playground, bathrooms, kitchen and a ton of toys.
We would like to invite you to take a look at these incredible before - after pictures on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/jaymakunan
We will now close this project on Betterplace.org and open a new one which will be a learning center in Huaycan, a extremely poor neighborhood in the east of Lima. There we want to build in a first step three classrooms for children between 5 and 12 years incl. kitchen, dining room and access to study material and at least one proper meal a day.
Of course, we would be extremely happy if you would also support our efforts there, just as you did for the kids in Villa el Salvador.
Thank you all so much!
All the best,
Team Jayma Kunan
