CPF Runner at Big Sur - April 2013

We are currently working with the following organizations:

Samusocial Peru, based in Huaycan (poor neighborhood near Lima), created by the French NGO Samusocial de Paris, they operate two ambulances (one of which was bought by the Children of Peru foundation) that go daily to Huaycan in search of people (mainly children) in need of immediate medical assistance. We financed the construction of new classrooms in the Huaycan high-school as well as a program to fight against tuberculosis and also several yearly operating costs of the ambulances.

MMFC (Medical Missions for Children), a US based 501c3 charity dedicated to providing free quality surgical & dental services to poor & under-privileged children in various countries throughout the world. We sponsor their yearly Cusco mission since 2007 & the new Cajamarca mission since 2010.

Manos Unidas, a Peruvian Non-Profit Organization founded in 2008 in Cusco, created & operates the first private school for special needs children in Cusco: Camino Nuevo. We provided funding for scholarships

EnsenaPeru, a Peruvian Non-Profit Organization based in Lima, part of the Teach For All global network & modeled after the Teach For America famous NGO. We are sponsors of one school and its 2 teachers near Arequipa.

Amantani, a Peruvian & British charity working in the Southern Andes to bridge the gap between school and home for the children around the village of Ccorca.
