Helping Overcome Obstacles Peru (HOOP)

HOOP is a non-profit organisation enhancing the education of disadvantaged children and their families in Arequipa, Peru.

Helping Overcome Obstacles Peru (HOOP) was founded in Flora Tristán in 2012. After witnessing first-hand the poverty, social problems, and lack of opportunities in the community, the  HOOP co-founders decided they would do whatever they could to help. Knowing the transformative power of education, they set up HOOP as a registered charity with the aim of lifting families out of poverty through projects delivered at our school in Flora Tristán.

HOOP has continued to grow ever since, and is now an important part of life for many families in the community. The relationship and trust we have is exceptional and allows us to create a lasting impact on the lives of the families we work with. We believe education is for everyone, so we provide strategic educational programs to give people of all ages the opportunity to advance their education, health, self-confidence and better their quality of life.
