About Us

Helping Overcome Obstacles Peru (HOOP Peru) is a fully registered NGO located in Arequipa, Peru that works with the impoverished people in the community of Flora Tristan. Flora Tristan is a shanty town located on the outskirts of the city composed of haphazardly constructed shacks with a lack of running water, and other basic services.

HOOP Peru is fully committed to breaking the cycle of poverty by empowering the Flora Tristan families through enhancing their education. Our current priorities are strengthening and developing the Flora Tristan community, and ensuring strategic educational programs through which students of all ages can advance their education, health, self-confidence and most importantly better their quality of life. The HOOP Flora Tristan School was established in 2007 and has seen enrollment increase to over 125 students since.

We offer English classes to children and adults; homework help; health, hygiene and nutrition workshops; and finance and business classes for some 20 mothers.
