Flora Tristán is a community of people who took the bold step of migrating to Arequipa in search of prosperity, but they continue to suffer from a lack of self development opportunities. Many children in the community don’t have access to adequate education and most of the mothers in the community did not progress beyond primary education, more than half remain unemployed. Our work is focused on providing the community with the advice necessary for them to overcome obstacles and develop personally and socially.
Consulting and training for composting projects and social enterprises which are managed by the community. "
Prevention of COVID-19, family economy, mental health support, hygiene, diet and remote psychologic care. "
