Children and the Environment

ANIA

TiNi

The Children´s Land (TiNi) initiative seeks to reconnect young people in Latin America with the natural environment and instill in them an understanding of how and why they should protect, nurture, and restore natural ecosystems and promote sustainability in the changing of the world. Tini is an area of land given to children by adults where they can learn how to collect seeds, propagate and plant useful native and multipurpose plants.

Through the TINI hands–on methodology children learn to implement concrete actions which will benefit themselves, their families, their communities, and nature. ANIA has supported the implementation of TINI in 12 regions of Perú and in 10 countries.

MaCTec

MacTec.jpg

MaCTec (Mini Academia de Ciencia y Tecnología) is a high impact social program that empowers girls in Perú with a first-rate Science Education to nurture their innate creative talents and foster their abilities to learn and think as a scientist. MaCTec promotes Science Literacy in Perú, as the prosperity of any country depends upon her scientific capital.

 

Since 2012 MaCTec offers workshops free of charge to girls from diverse socio-economic backgrounds; they are selected by lottery as school grades are poor predictors for discovering creative talents, essential traits for scientific explorations. The workshops are directed by well recognized scientists from the USA and Perú, who apply the MaCTec method “Discovery-Peer Learning”. In 2017, MaCTec was named “UNESCO Laureate 2017 for Girls and Women Education” for innovation in Science Education.

Kusimayo is a non-profit organization making a difference in the lives of children, families and the elderly in the rural communities in Puno since 2008.

In the last four years, the photographer Javier Gamboa has implemented 33 libraries in the region of Sucre, Ayacucho, where schools lack the necessary resources to promote reading among their students.  Thanks to awareness campaigns carried out in the city of Lima about the greatest educational needs in Ayacucho, this initiative has allowed more than 70,000 books to be delivered in impoverished and isolated communities. “Each book is the perfect tool to fight poverty”, says Javier Gamboa.

Education for all children in Peru

Enseña Perú

DSC07484 (1) (2).jpg

Enseña Perú is a non-profit organization within the Teach For All global education network which strives to see that , by 2032, at least 8 out of 10 peruvian children and young people receive an education of excellence. In a country where only 2 out of 10 rural students perform at grade level, there is an incredible need for a Peruvian educational infrastructure that promotes good institutional management and continuity of leadership.  

 

To achieve these ambitious objectives, Enseña Perú has the “Leadership program” which actively recruits and trains outstanding young professionals to commit two years to teach full-time in the highest-need schools in Perú, where they aim to transform students' lives, academic ambition, and personal growth. Another program is "What a Teacher", which consists in training local teachers and principals across the country, so they can support different generations of students by giving them the opportunity to grow and fulfill their purpose. Like these 2 programs, Enseña Perú has many other ways to boost collective action with the private sector, philantropy, public sector, the community, etc. in order to see significant changes in the peruvian education system. This year, Enseña Perú seeks to benefitiate more than 12,000 students from 13 regions of the country.

Casa Khuyana
manitas - Casa Khuyana.jpeg

The Casa Khuyana Association is building the first Hospice in Peru, where children and young people with terminal illnesses, and their families, will be received free of charge.

The Association believes that when a child is determined to be medically terminal, the first thing to do is to control the pain and all the physical symptoms that affect the well-being of the child. Then, just as importantly, to provide emotional, social, and spiritual support to the child and their family.

Casa Khuyana will have 10 rooms for families to share quality time in a warm and homey atmosphere - very different from the cold hospital environment. The house will also provide companionship, support, and loving professional care. Palliative care can help the patient and their loved ones make the most of every moment they have together. The team is made up of doctors, nurses, psychologists.
