Qosqo Maki provides support to children of the street and families living in poverty. The house is run by professional social workers and provides formative educational, artistic, and occupational training. Children come to the house voluntarily and are provided with a warm meal six days of the week.
How We Found Them
While visiting Peru in 2014, Davis Smith visited the Qosqo Maki shelter in Peru.
How Your Purchase Helps
Although the street children who live at Qosqo Maki go to school, they often fall behind in class because they do not have parental help with their schoolwork. We hope to provide enough funding for the shelter to hire an on-site tutor (something the workers at Qosqo requested). This will help children at the shelter to receive an education and improve their situations.
