AMURTEL Peru has been working in Paraiso Alto, a neighborhood on the outskirts of Lima since 2001. Yes, there is poverty in Paraiso Alto, but poverty is only part of the picture. We also see people who want the best for their children, who offer a helping hand to a neighbor, and care for the community like it is their family.
We have collaborated with members since 2001 in offering social programs.
ONLINE ENGLISH PROGRAM
In 2018 we started to teach Critical Thinking to the children in Paraiso Alto as a means to generate a thirst for learning that will benefit them throughout their lives.
Learning Critical Thinking skills offers a way to train the mind to use analytic and reasoning skills as well as positive social habits to understand ideas and information in a profound way.
In December 2022, Rurapuk began a weekly in-person after-school reading program for children who had fallen behind over the pandemic. They started out unable to sound out letters and are now fluent readers!
