Peru 109

Hola Dani,

Thanks for getting in touch with us with your question and also for sharing with us about your project. I am looking forward to reading more about the various outcomes this summer!

Our organization is Peru 109, and we lead volunteer programs in three different cities in Peru: Chimbote, Trujillo, and San Sebastian (Cusco). Two dollars equals approximately six soles (the Peruvian currency), and here are some examples of what that might help with:

* photocopies for 60 children of a story, drawing, or writing/math practice at one of our partner schools
* ingredients for baking a batch of oatmeal cookies (our volunteers work with people with disabilities and survivors of domestic violence to help them sell baked goods and earn profits)
* round trip bus fare to downtown Cusco for 5 women who are looking for employment
* 6 hours of internet use for our volunteers to research information to teach English, children's activities, support women survivors of domestic violence
* glue and popsicle sticks for 30 children to complete a creative building project
* 6 printed photos for families who have never seen a photograph of themselves

Please let us know if you have any additional question!
