Description

At Otra Cosa Network, our vision is equal opportunities in Peru for everyone to succeed and thrive.


We run five of our own projects, which are all part of the Huanchaco Education and Learning Programme (HELP). HELP is dedicated to advancing the education possibilities and resources for those living in lower-income communities in Huanchaco and the surrounding shanty towns. Alongside this, we support several partner organisations in the area, as well as in two remote locations in northern Peru.

Otra Cosa Network needs to explore new fundraising opportunities in the UK and in the European Union, building up a varied network of funding support to establish the organisation and ensure long-term commitment to our partner projects.
