Intiwawa Arequipa – Intihouse

Help families with health education.

About the project

We are a Peruvian NGO working in the villages of San Isidro, outside of the metropolis of Arequipa, and Coporaque, in the Colca Canyon. Our team consists of motivated volunteers from all over the world working in Germany and Peru. Our goal is to fight the poverty in these villages by providing tools for the children to achieve an autonomous community, where Intiwawa as an organization is no longer needed. We want to contribute to the integral development of the children and their parents and encourage them to improve their living standards and fulfill their dreams. Another goal of ours is to fight widely spread domestic violence and child labor. To achieve these goals and to fight the main symptoms of poverty, Intiwawa carries out projects in several areas: educational support, health promotion, strengthening socio-cultural values, and strengthening environmental values.

  1. Great NGO

    Great organization which is always trying to improve itself.
    Intiwawa is open for everyone who is motivated to fight poverty and enhance the children’s living standards. You can really make a difference.

    I loved staying at Intihouse!

  2. Great location, hospitable and friendly team!

    We stayed for only two nights, but the team in the house ist super friendly, hospitable and nice. They helped us to organize a trip to the Colca Canyon and recommended us places to go in Arequipa, they helped us everytime we had a question- thank you!!
    The location of the house is perfect, very close to the main place of Arequipa. We also loved the terrace with the beautiful view and the hammocks!! Just one point of criticism: the bedroom for 2 persons on the ground floor was mouldy- if you are allergic it’s not a good idea to sleep there. But the room on the first floor (4 beds) was alright!
