The Woza Soccer Peru trip of 2019 plans to raise 2,000 dollars in an effort to build a shelter for Escuela Chicon and use all remaining funds to support the Peruvian Hearts foundation.
Nestled in the mountainous outskirts of Urubamba, Escuela Chicon provides elementary education to the district of Chicon. Due to their relatively small size and lack of funding, the school is unable to fund the building of an outdoor shelter for their students. The desired shelter would cover the stairs located in the main quad (as shown in photo) and would protect students from the harsh sun and rain throughout the year.
All remaining proceeds will be donated to the Peruvian Hearts foundation. Peruvian Hearts supports Peruvian women throughout their college careers and beyond. By providing tuition grants, academic and emotional support, and career assistance, Peruvian Hearts kickstarts opportunities to break poverty cycles and support social change in Peru. All women enrolled in the program are high achieving students otherwise unable to continue their education due to circumstance.
We hope you choose to donate!
