WHO WE ARE

We are a group of people who help other people as volunteers in various organizations in Trujillo-Peru. During work, where ideas are usually exchanged and we fraternize, we discovered our disagreement with the conventional system that Nonprofit Organizations managed and did not cause a tangible positive impact on the communities.



For this reason, we decided to create an organization that really assists the needs of the population with a cosmopolitan world approach, where we learn to value each culture, person, and idea with the purpose of working in our BEING to achieve prosperity. Since then, we have been carrying out an arduous work together with the neediest communities, through social and educational programs for the sake of their development and self-realization.
