Gulf for Good - Charity Challenge - Machu Picchu 2023
Chicuchas Wasi began in 1987, focusing on the society’s tolerated human rights violations of the many abandoned children, as young as 6 years old, surviving alone on the streets of Cusco, Peru. Chicuchas Wasi created a safe house which includes nutrition, healthcare, schooling, life skills, and much more.
Chicuchas Wasi School for Girls provides free, primary education, emphasizing on personal development, empowerment, and academics. They stress personal values, integrity, self-esteem and social responsibility for an adult life of quality, dignity, gender equality, and financial independence. Chichuchas Wasi School maintains a big presence in the community with cultural celebrations, supporting socials issues and women's issues and to spread the value and importance of education for girls.
The school currently does not have an indoor facility larger than a classroom to host events, sports, theatre presentations or otherwise. The goal is to fundraise to build a dry multipurpose room for such activities .
