Crowdfunder: Creating safe environment for children of Peruvian village damaged by floods

Campaign: Project Taray

Sonco Wasi, the non-profit parent organization to Project Taray, was founded in 2010 to support the children of Taray after a disastrous flood seriously damaged the village. They provide a wide variety of activities ranging from art to sports to gardening, as well as a way for international volunteers to connect with the children and experience Peruvian culture while sharing their own.

Project Taray provides after-school activities and social support for kids in the village of Taray, and they need help to create a safe, hygienic, and fun environment.

As of now, the playground is bordered on one side by a pile of dangerous scrap, including broken glass and rusty metal. As for the bathrooms, the toilets don’t function and the rooms themselves haven’t been cleaned in recent memory.

The classroom is almost completely bare: there are a few mats on the floor, a broken bureau with some art supplies, and a small collection of books.

Three central goals of the campaign are:

  1. Remove hazardous materials from the site
  2. Fix and clean the bathrooms
  3. Furnish and stock the classroom

The campaign’s goal is $2,000.
