About Peru

Peru is located in the west of South America and borders the Pacific Ocean with a length of about 2,400 km. While the Andes account for nearly 30% of the national territory, the rainforest region with about 60% makes up a large part of the landscape. With a share of 45%, Peru has the highest share of indigenous population groups in Latin America, along with Bolivia and Guatemala.

Our Work

Our projects aim at empowering vulnerable groups in Peru including women, indigenous people and the rural population. The focus lays on protecting local ecosystems, promoting sustainable agroforestry, creating alternative livelihood opportunities, and offering alphabetization courses.

Major Challenges

Despite the unique cultural and natural wealth, Peru still is facing challenges such as poverty and high social as well as economic inequalities. Big parts of the population struggle from a lack of access to clean water, energy, and basic sanitation. This accounts especially to Peru’s indiginous population living in rural areas.
