Supporting Kids in Peru - SKIP

SKIP is a charity working with disadvantaged families in an impoverished district of the city of Trujillo, Peru. 

SKIP is a UK, US and Peruvian registered charity working in the impoverished districts of El Porvenir and Alto Trujillo, located on the North Coast of Peru. SKIP's primary aim is to enable children living in this area to realise their right to an education. In terms of theoretical framework, we understand that families are the principal force in the lives of children and therefore work with the entire familial unit. Our holistic program focuses on the educational, economic, emotional and social development of each child and family. It is our aim is to foster the capacity of children and families to be the principal agents of change in their own lives.

This holistic approach focuses on four pillars of family development: education, economically stable families, emotional well-being, and healthy and safe home environments. SKIP believes that economically-disadvantaged families have the capacity to be the principal agents of change in their own lives and communities. As such, our organisation works in partnership with the community to empower people to make sustainable changes.
