At AbrePuertas, we believe that the way out of poverty is education, and we work to empower all members of the community to improve their lives through education.
We work in the community of Coya, in the Sacred Valley outside of Cusco, Peru, where the public education falls short and many people don’t make it through high school, and almost none reach college. Despite the difficult life many families lead, they value education for their children and their selves, and we are working with them to expand their opportunities to learn skills to help them economically as well as enrich their lives. Eventually we envision leaving a self-sustainable community education center in Coya, and repeating the cycle in similar communities. Please find out more about our cause, and collaborate with us toward a more empowered world.
