Picaflor House

iF SOCIAL IMPACT PRIZE 2020

Picaflor House supports children's education by providing classes in maths, reading, writing and communication. We provide English courses designed to help the kids reach a basic level. Public school is only in Spanish and many of the parents only speak the indigenous language Quechua. For this reason, we offer homework help. This gives the children the best chance of achieving excellent academic results and thereby creating better employment & future educational opportunities. We also provide additional activities that many children in Peru do not experience at public school, such as arts & crafts, sports, music, traditional dance and chess.

The idea is quiet simple but obviously needed. Children have a safe place to go after school while their parents are still working. In addtion they learn new skills, find friends and get educated in their creative skills which comes short in public schools.
Jury Statement
We are extremely proud that the work we do at Picaflor House has been recognized through the iF SOCIAL IMPACT PRIZE! The children and families we support at Picaflor House are among some of the hardest hit by Peru’s pandemic quarantine and need our support now more than ever, so this honor come at great time so that we can provide extra support to them.
