Qosqo Maki

Help the youth become independent working people in Cusco!

About the project

Qosqo Maki is an association created in 1990 that ensures the accompaniment of the exercise of the rights of working children and adolescents in street situation in Cusco, Peru. They have decided to leave their family for a while, after daily situations that affected their physical, emotional and social integrity. The NGO has four programs: a night reception service for working youth in the streets, a library/playroom space, two bakery and carpentry training workshops and a solidarity tourism program. Each program has its own characteristics, but they converge on a common goal: multiply the opportunities for individual and collective construction.

  1. Qosqo Maki, like a second home

    I had the chance to stay at Qosqo Maki during my holidays in Cusco and the experience was amazing!
    Qosqo Maki is THE place you need to go if you stop at Cusco for several days. The team is very nice, you can participate in the activities with the kids in the library and share your meal in the kitchen with the volunteers during the day.
    I recommend you this place, I felt lika at home ­čÖé

  2. Good project, good accommodation to stay!

    We stayed for several nights at Qosqo Maki and we were very happy with our decision to stay at an “social Hostel”. The team was very friendly, the bedroom was clean and spacious. We could leave parts of our luggage in the house for some days, while we were hiking the Salkantay Trek. It was a good place to stay and a very positive project to support!
