Peru Project Highlights

In northern Peru, we are working with Water For People to provide drinking water to 26 families in the community of Chorrillo and improve drinking water services in health centers that will benefit more than 7,000 people.

Together with our partner Energía, Ambiente y Sostenibilidad, we are using energy generated by micro-hydro to build more efficient agriculture irrigation, contributing to crop diversification and food sustainability with 41 families in the community of Suro.

In 2019 alone, we provided clean water and energy access for two rural clinics in the Peruvian Highlands serving 2,900 people.

Honoring a tradition

While we are unable to come together at Andina Restaurant this year, we honor the tradition of coming together to celebrate and share stories over a meal.

Special thank you to Advanced Wealth Management for sponsoring the event.
