Empower 100 young leaders from Manchay, Peru

by Ruwasunchis Vetted since 2017


We will educate and empower 100 young leaders from marginal urban areas for them to develop entrepreneurial skills and create social projects to impact their own communities while mobilizing other youngsters to join them. Instead of being part of unsafe spaces and gangs and continue with the cycle of poverty and violence we will make them part of our methodology "Believe in yourself to create for others" based in leadership, entrepreneurial & creative skills in a secure, harmonious environment.
