Description

Sayariy-Resurgiendo is a Peruvian NGO working directly with people from disadvantaged communities, building safe spaces where children can grow up in an environment free of violence but with respect and equality of opportunities. We promote environmental awareness, as well as historical and cultural memory. Our programs are developed with the involvement of the local communities and the volunteers become part of a cultural exchange which helps reinforce and promote knowledge.

We are growing since 2015 and collaborate at grass roots to promote 3 areas;

  •         Education

  •         Community library activities

  •         Literacy programs for adults
  •         Information workshops on gender awareness, equality and health
