We are building a Community Center in Sunampe, Chincha in order to improve the quality of life of locals. This center will serve 500-1000 and provide educational and emergency services to strengthen ties within the respective communities.


The beneficiaries of this project will be 500 to 1000 people in the communities of Chacarita and Huaca Grande in the District of Sunampe, Province of Chincha, Department of Ica. Chincha was devastated by an earthquake (of magnitude 8.0) in 2007

A group of ten international students will be travelling to Chincha and working alongside Harry Hildebrand, a Professor at Markham College (a Peruvian High School)

This current project consists of the construction of another center. However, the main emphasis is no longer only on the development of infrastructure; but on organizing and helping the communities in post- earthquake region to become more independent. Great importance is given to the education about environment and the democratic rights of the people within the communities.

We aim to

  • Improve the communities’ capacity to organize themselves (responsibility of Sra. Grimaldi)
  • Provide the communities with a source of sustainable development, and encourage the unity of the community.
  • Provide a location for emergency support and public information.
  • Create green areas, and at the same time provide the communities with a productive activity that may be run by minors (planting of native trees, gardens and orchards). This part of project to be developed by the NGO ANIA

FUNDS will be going towards the materials of this project and transportation costs of the materials. The construction will come in a few stages.
