Mission & Vision
We would like to become a foundation, which can create an opportunity to take part, learn and grow for each Andean native community, family, child and youth, inside of their own environment while reaching their full capacity.
Enable Andean communities, families, children and youth to connect with suitable opportunities in order to build hope for lifelong changes and to break the vicious circle of poverty.
Building Brighter Future
The "Responsible People" is a registered charity helping Andean families in need. As the life can be hard if you do not have enough money to cover only the basic necessities. For instance, housing, energy or proper nutrition. We know that the reality of life of many Peruvian families is that they have hardly enough to pay for their absolutely basic needs.
As positive experience during childhood and adolescence in families can be a key for children´s future, we would like to break the circle of hardship. For that reason, we have decided to build bridges between people willing to help and those in need.
Along with our donators, volunteers and community partners, we find opportunities in difficult times helping those children to rise, explore and release their potential. In order to build brighter future for them, we have developed 4 programs:
- Adopt a Community
- Adopt a Family
- Adopt a Child
- Adopt a School
We believe that giving a chance brightens up any misfortune!
