We are ending the year, and we are so gratefull for all your help. The youth that we have worked with have had a a wonderful experience in Ruwa, and now they are starting to be change agents in their community. 

 

Ou future challenge is to coach and walk the way through our youth, and we will do that with a next project, that will be based in giving them job and study opportunities, as well as developing the top skills that the jobs of this fourth industrial revolution requires. And we will give a lot of energy to the kids, like those of our photo, with the leadership of our youth: they will be their mentors and volunteers for improving their self-steem and resilence. 

 

Thanks for your help, for being part of this movement and positive change, blessing for you and your family, we will keep our work in Manchay and continue to dream a better country, through action and the sum of heart, mind and hands.

Kathy is an amazing leader that coordinates the Kids program (ProNi), and with a group of young volunteers from Manchay, and volunteers different parts of Lima, they nurture 4 seeds are in kids from San Pablo: Self-esteem, Resilience, Freedom and Healthy Coexistence. Every Saturday and Sunday of the year a group of youth volunteers help nurture these seeds through Arts, Creativity and Sports workshops, where 50 kids enjoy a safe space where they can develop and grow. Besides Kathy, Analia, Wilson, Gian, Frank, and Isabel are volunteers for the Kids project, and this is part of their empowerement process, that started in the School of Entrepreneurs, and will continue with some exciting news that we will share in the next Report =) 

Thanks for you help, and for being part of this family. 

 

Ruwa Team

6 Youth from Manchay: Wilson, Frank, Gian, Liz, Liz Merly and Geraldine, started the Street Soccer program, where they are teaching Street Soccer to 20 kids from San Pablo Mirador Community. 

These workshops are going to take place every Sunday and the are lead by young volunteers from Manchay, that once were kids in Ruwa's projects. 

Those 6 youth were part of the Leadership Bootcamp that we had, and they are now making changes in their community. THen they will be part of a national network for promoting Street Soccer with hundreds of kids and young people in Peru. =) 

One of the videos of the workshops can be seen at: https://www.facebook.com/ruwasunchis/videos/2075653262464456/ 

Empowered youth that have been part of our school of entrepreneurs have new challenges =) 

Bea (19) and Isabel (20), inspiring young leaders of Manchay, are now part of Ruwasunchis team, and the are leading the project of Kids and Women, respectively. Bea, along with other 5 youth of Manchay that are volunteers, will be leading the project for 50 kids in Manchay. They will nurture creativity and self-esteem in those 50 kids, with arts, sports and creativity workshops every weekend of the year. 

Isabel will have a really beautiful challenge leading the project of weavers. Isa studied Design with a scholarship that Ruwasunchis, individual donors and Chio Lecca gave to her, and she is a very talented and commited woman. The project for women will let them increase their income, and have access to nutrition and "smart eating" workshops. 

We are very happy that the youth that are part of our project now assume the challenges of their communities, and they are now role models for other young women from their community and for our society in general.

Gerald is 19 years old and has been part of Ruwa's family since she was 10. It’s been an amazing journey together getting to the point that this year she has been leading the youth group to a new level. 

She has been able to mobilize more than 50 youth from Manchay to motivate them to go each Sunday and receive different workshops of our program. She has also been able to manage difficult situations and give positive advise to the younger ones. 

 

She and other 45 youth have received over 40 hours of training in Ruwa skills development (humble leadership, effective communication, creativity, change management, meaningful collaboration, empathy and entrepreneurial attitude). 

One of our main focus was to help them to discover their own life project. It is characterized by young people from vulnerable communities, it is the dispersion when focusing on their life trajectory and the search for motivation and clarity that allows them to break the circle of the poverty in which they grew up. Each of them will leave at the end of the program with a plan of life armed and reflected by themselves.

 

Gerald has a clear path now, she knows she wants to help people through her career, psychology and have a social impact with young people from vulnerable places. 

 

We invite you to contact us any time, Gerald would love to meet you and keep growing through conversations and inspiration. ¡Thank you for being part of our lifes!
