Alto Perú is a neighborhood with high rates of violence, crime, drug use, and a lack of opportunities for children and young people living in the neighborhood. Growing up in this context represents a real challenge for the entire community, and the lack of public and private spaces means that many children cannot recreate healthily and end up making bad decisions for their lives.
But, with YOUR help, more than 89 children and adolescents between the ages of 8 and 14 have benefited. The Surf Therapy program offers each of the participants a safe space where they learn tools to develop socio-emotional skills that allow them to improve their mental health, promote physical activity and above all, increase their resilience. Our methodology is evidence-based.
