Summary

Peru Champs wants to tackle the pressing issue of education in Peru. Unfortunately, a high quality education is only currently accessible to families with a high income. Our mission is to identify and empower talented, underprivileged kids (whom we call 'Champs') by providing them with scholarships and a Leadership Program for a world class education. Your donation can give the possibility of contributing in the necessary tools for 300 of our Champs to become future leaders of Peru.

Challenge

Peru has one of the worst education systems in the world. This problem is underscored by the results in the 2015 PISA test, a global education survey in which Peru ranked 65th place out of 73 in mathematics, 67th place out of 73 in science and 66th place out of 73 in reading comprehension of the participating countries. Shockingly, only 14.3% of children in 8th grade understand what they are reading, and only 11.5% of children in the same grade have a satisfactory results in mathematics.

Solution

Peru Champs wants to tackle the pressing issue of education in Peru. Unfortunately, a high quality education is only accessible for high income families. Our mission is to identify and empower talented, underprivileged kids (whom we call 'Champs') by providing them with scholarships for a world class education. These students also learn the skills necessary to become future leaders in academics, arts or sports within Peru. In addition, we provide school supplies.

Long-Term Impact

Peru Champs scholarships provide the opportunity for low-income children to become leaders of the future through their high quality elementary and high school education. We work in fifteen cities across the country, a scope that will allow us to generate real change in Peru.
