We worked with the Costa Foundation to improve schools in San Ignacio, Nuevo Eden, Nuevo Sullana and Mazaronquiari, and build a completely new school in Chuquibambilla.
Many of the buildings were in desperate need of repair. Schools in these areas often only have one classroom where children of different ages and abilities attend the same lessons. Some children have to travel long distances and, with little classroom space, many children can’t attend school at all.
The renovated schools have more classrooms, better equipment and hygienic kitchens and dining rooms.
