How are isolated communities these days?

Dear all,

We hope you and your loved ones are healthy and safe.

In this crisis, we are all suffering. However, those who live in poverty are suffering the most. Poverty does not only persist but has increased during these months.  Where were those accomplishments on the eradication on poverty some institutions have been applauding? If you want to know more about it, you might find interesting the last report of the United Nations Special Rapporteur on extreme poverty and human rights. The parlous state of poverty eradication, that was released a last week.

For now, we have been supporting our community partner with food and basic hygiene kit (soaps). We were able to delivered 85 baskets, two weeks ago.  We are hoping to deliver more very soon.

Find below all our latest weekly messages and send us an email to info@nexos.org.pe if you want to receive them directly to your email.

An adequate standard of living. That's te goal.

Life's intimate connections.

First basket delivery to Cuncani: Done 

We need sport. Sport needs us.

News from Cuncani: Holding pattern and patience

Lunch Program 2020

[English]

Hello everyone!

We are here again! While we are here writing this message for you, 16 university students and a university professor are in Cuncani supported by our Project Director, Kenji Misawa, our Program coordinator, Dave Holmes and a new friend of our family, David Borish. You should follow his wonderful work on instagram! You can find him as Davidborishvisuals!

All of them are working on more activities dedicated to the Kick-Off project and teaching the children to ride a bicycle so the 52 ones who are going to Lares, for high school, can go there safe!

Classes for Primary school will start very soon and it is our time to raise the funds for their lunch. This would be the 6th year the kids would grow without anaemia, if we reach our goal. 

For years, we have tried to find a sustainable way to provide good nutrition to the children but the isolation factor and lack of presence of government are challenges that we haven't been able to combat, yet.

Soon we will start our new campaign, and we hope we can have your support! Whilst our campaign is prepared, we want to share with you this video that summarizes our Kick-Off Project!

Thanks again,

Nexos Comunitarios

Gracias a En Bici al Cole, por contribuir con nuestro trabajo.

Las clases en primaria empezarán muy pronto y es momento de empezar una nueva recaudación de fondos para sus almuerzos. Este podrá ser lel sexto año para que las niñas y niños puedan seguir creciendo sin anemia. Esperamos alcanzar nuestra meta. 

Por años hemos tratado de encontrar una solución sostenible para proveer mejor nutrición a las niñas y niños pero el aislamiento y la falta de presencia del estado, son retos muy grandes que no hemos podido combatir, aún.

Pronto empezaremos con una nueva campaña y esperamos contar con su ayuda. Mientras preparamos todo, los dejamos con este video que resume nuestro proyecto Kick-Off!

Muchas gracias nuevamente,

A couple of months left! // Unos meses mas!

Good afternoon, everyone!

It's been a while since we send you a message. We hope you are doing very well.

We are reaching the end of the year and although we had to stop the project for few weeks due to lack of funding, this last Monday we were able to started it again! We are happy knowing the kids are eating properly this week.

According to our plans for next year, we expect this project can be part of a bigger one: Kick-Off! We are working on finding the right partnerships to implement all the components of the project starting next year. Kick-Off is a project that aims to promote Quality Education (SDG #4) in rural areas in Peru, by using soccer as a foundation of our methodology to improve cognitive and non-cognitive skills while education the children to become socially rounded citizens.

At the end of this year, we will be having a surprise for the children in Cuncani, that will help them to continue with their secondary education. To know more about it, stay tuned!

Thanks again for all your support!

¡Buenas tardes a tod@s!

Ha pasado un buen tiempo desde que les enviamos un mensaje. Esperamos que tod@s se encuentren muy bien.

Estamos llegando al final del año y a pesar que tuvimos que hacer una pausa al proyecto debido a la falta de financiamiento, finalmente, este lunes hemos hemos empezado nuevamente. ¡Estamos muy felices al saber que l@s niñ@s de Cuncani han vuelto a comer propiamente!

De acuerdo a nuestros planes para el próximo año, esperamos que este proyecto form parte de un proyecto más grande: Kick-Off. Estamos trabajando fuerte para encontrar los socios adecuados para poder implementar todos los componentes de este proyecto. Kick-Off es un proyecto que busca promover la Educación de Calidad (ODS #4) en áreas rurales del Perú, usando el fútbol como elemento base de nuestra metodología para mejorar las habilidades cognitivas y no-cognitivas mientras formamos a las niñas y niños para que se conviertan en ciudadan@s socialmente responsables.

Al final de este año, tendremos una sorpresa para l@s niñ@s de Cuncani, que los ayudará a continuar su educación secundaria. ¡Para conocer más de esta sorpresa no dejen de estar pendientes de las noticias!

Nuevamente, gracias por toda su ayuda.
