Team Peru

Young people helping young people

TEAM PERU is a service-learning programme of Copenhagen International School, which works in partnership with UK-based Kiya Survivors in supporting education centres for special needs, abused and abandoned Peruvian children. Team Peru aims to enhance the learning experience of each student by learning, doing and reflecting, while addressing and advancing the needs of Peruvian children through service. Team Peru achieves its mission through practice, education and support.

Team Peru - Kids helping Kids
High in the desert mountains of Peru lies the village of Los Organos.
Suffering from constant water shortages, staggering unemployment and rife alcoholism, it is the children of this region who are most vulnerable.
This is where Team Peru has been working!
With funds raised by Team Peru, the Mama Cocha Centre was opened in 2008 providing help for
children suffering from physical or mental disability, many of whom are often severely mistreated by their parents.
The Mama Cocha Centre has expanded and now provides a range of service for the children.
On staff there is a full-time physiotherapist, a part-time psychologist and a part-time speech therapist. There is also a nursery and a playground with the opportunity for children to enjoy a safe and supportive environment.
We know that healing one part of a community will not provide an enduring change so the Mama Cocha Centre also holds group sessions offering parents and relatives the information and support they need to provide a more nurturing environment for their children.
Water is also brought in weekly to the centre by truck to provide improved conditions for the children.
Our CIS kids in Team Peru work tirelessly to raise funds which provide a meaningful difference in the lives of an entire community.
In turn, the kids of Mama Cocha give our children the opportunity to learn first-hand the meaning of living in a global village and to discover a greater sense of humanity.
Team Peru has changed the future for many children and adults – please join us in this effort.
