The Ruwa Seeds Project develops the social and emotional skills of 100 children from Manchay, Lima, Peru. The children will participate in arts, sports, and play workshops to strengthen their confidence and self-esteem. We will share a report every three months with an update on the project's impact on the children and their families. Our children are between 3 and 14 years old.
Children in our community need emotional and social education so they can improve their self-esteem and self-regard. Having low self-esteem increases their risk of entering into gangs, teen pregnancy, or dropping out of school. They don't have safe spaces for interacting with each other, because there are always risks related to drugs or gangs. Children in Manchay also lack spaces that boost their creativity and social skills, such as empathy, emotional intelligence, or decision making.
Our kids grow up in a positive environment, developing skills that will help them build the life they dream of. They will grow with more confidence and well-being and become change agents for their community. We help develop better leaders in Peru with more self-esteem and enthusiasm for creating a positive impact on the world. We also work with their families, for aiming a more sustainable outcome.
