About Us

Our History


MySmallHelp (MSH) was set up in 2007 by a group of friends in the UK and Nepal who strongly believe in upholding basic human rights for children.

In March 2011, MySmallHelp Peru was registered as a non-profit organization to pursue the mission of improving living conditions for Peruvians (especially children who have disabilities) and their families by providing access to education, health care, and skills training. Since 2013, MySmallHelp Peru became MiPequeñaAyuda so that the locals would find it easier to remember the name.

 

Our Vision


Our vision is to create a culture of change and avoid a culture of dependency by challenging the current mindset of poverty and empower people in need to be responsible for their own growth and take control of their own lives.
