Minka Project invites you to participate and develop your professional skills in a project aimed at providing support, educational and emotional assistance to children living at risk.

These children come from Quechua migrant families and native to areas of the Peruvian Andes and have been affected by political violence, social, economic and cultural marginalization, in general, by extreme poverty (poverty map of the Peruvian government). The project is being developed in areas or communities around the Mantaro Valley in the central Andes of Peru. These areas lack basic health services, and are populated by dysfunctional families who are subject to problems of sexism, domestic violence, alcoholism, and socio-cultural exclusion. We intervene directly in the areas and communities, using a holistic approach and doing direct social work.

We are a civil organization that promotes social volunteering, we operate with a flat structure and we work directly with the communities. We undertake teamwork and promote the self-development of communities. Our projects are carried out on site, without intermediaries. In addition, we offer a real and fun method of cultural exchange.
