What We Do
The Chijnaya Foundation works in partnership with rural communities in Southern Peru to design and implement self-sustaining projects in health, education, and economic development. We believe in the capacity of Andean people to create self-sustaining activities that will improve their living standards and quality of life.
Economic development for rural communities is at the heart of the Chijnaya Foundation mission, specifically agricultural microlending.
Health and the Environment
The fortunes of families and communities are closely tied to basic health care access, clean water, and native plant and aquatic ecosystems.
We responds to the overwhelming demand of rural families for access to higher education by establishing a university scholarship program.
