About Us

The Peruvian Education Initiative (PEI) is a student-run non-profit organization founded by Amherst College students in 2007. PEI sponsors the education of economically disadvantaged students from the Manchay district in Lima, Peru. We partner with Peru's existing educational establishment to create a network of both state and private institutions that guide promising students from the slum on a path to university. The community of Manchay lacks adequate financial, medical, and educational resources. PEI works to solve these chronic issues by sponsoring the secondary education of select scholars from the shantytown. Our project provides a full five-year secondary school enrollment including tutoring, transportation school supplies, and a full-tuition scholarship.
