Asociación Civil WARA

Network Member

Founded in 2005, the Asociación Civil WARA works to improve the lives of young people in remote rural communities in the Southern Andean region of Peru. WARA brings together children from different backgrounds in order to promote intercultural exchange, citizenship rights and democratic values. There is also a strong focus on the empowerment of women, who traditionally live in underprivileged circumstances in the communities concerned.

 

Football is used as the primary tool for development within the fields of education, health, gender equality and environment, in an area which is otherwise largely ignored by government programmes and social initiatives.
