Summary

Do you consider that education is the most powerful weapon we can use to change the world? We definitely do. And we know that we have to start with the youngest. This is why we devote all our energy into working with little children and their families, and we need your support to make it real.

Challenge

Yachay Wasi Early Education Center was created almost 6 years ago. We rented a land which was a corn field and with the help of the community and volunteers, we built a beautiful kindergarten there. Now, the contract is coming to an end and the landlord doesnt want to rent it any more. Our 30 children and families will be affected as they wont be able to attend to the public kindergarten, as it is full, and their parents wont be able to work as they have to look after their children.

Solution

We need to make our dream come true. We need to purchase a land to have our own place. This will allow us to improve our programmes, to attend more children, to create a nursery for the littlest ones, to continue offering phycological support to the families, to have a big garden where we could grow our food and improve our nutrition programme. And to have the stability we need to continue growing...

Long-Term Impact

The community will benefit from having a new, modern, innovative educational centre in town. We will be an example for other institutions and work toghether with them to improve local education. Well be the first nursery recognized by the ministry of education in the area and the only space attending children under 3 years old. This will allow parents, specially single mothers, to work and being economically independent. This will affect 45 families and the whole community.
