Alto Peru

We use sports, alternative education, and placemaking to promote social change

The problem we aim to solve:

Peru is the country with the highest rate of crime victims in the region. In Lima, criminal acts among young people have increased by more than 80% and 14 out of 100 students drop out of college, of whom 27.2% leave because of disinterest.

The solution our project offers:

On one hand, we create opportunities for children promoting development and empowering them through sports and alternative education, instilling positive values and attitudes towards life. On the other hand, we promote community development through the recovery and redesign of public spaces .

The impact our project had so far:

+300 kids involved in our programs 1 new playground + 1 new green area 5 cultural festivals
