Review for Chicuchas Wasi, Forestville, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been a part of Chicuchas Wasi since the beginning and I can't tell you how rewarding this experience has been! We are into our second year of school at our new facility and just completed the Global Giving challenge to be accepted on their website. Follow our progress on Chicuchaswasi.org, Chicuchas Wasi Cusco Peru on Facebook and at @Chicuchaswasi!

Rating: 5 stars  

Chicuchas Wasi started over 25 years ago as a refuge for children living on the streets of Cusco, Peru. We have evolved over time into a school for underprivileged girls - our current enrollment is 113!
We don't charge the families for their daughters to attend school, we support the school entirely with donations and are currently involved in a fundraising drive on Globalgiving. These girls are receiving an education that they would never have dreamed of. I am proud to be a part of this life changing organization. Please visit our website: chicuchaswasi.org!

Dear Karen, As an active member of the California Board of Directors since the beginning 26 years ago, you have truly seen the many changes and incredible growth of Chicuchas Wasi. With the new school in 2012 we have been able to accept more girls needing access to our Alternative style of education. We not only include academic education, but we support growth in confidence and self-worth and values that are daily reinforced by staff and director. We are the Chicuchas Wasi Family of 115 students, 13 staff members at the School and in California another 5 on the board of directors...all working together towards the same goal. Education of a girl will give her and her family one day, the key out of poverty. Thank you for all your loyal hardworking years of service to the poor children of Cusco, Peru.

I have been a part of Chicuchas Wasi for over 25 years. We started by helping just a few kids and in 2013 will have 130 girls enrolled in our school! We provide a solid education for these girls who would never have had a chance to be educated. All of the board members are volunteers so all of the donations we receive go directly to the school. I am so proud to be a member of this worthwhile grass roots organization. Please visit our website chicuchaswasi.org or Facebook - Chicuchas Wasi - Cusco for more information.

Another great review from someone who has seen what just a few people can do to lift up the life of a child, and change it forever. To see those toothless smiles appear warms my heart. Karen has tirelessly helped grow Chicuchas Wasi for 26 years. The students in our school know Karen by name, and thank her with those smiles. Join us to change the lives of our students escaping poverty with your help. Girls and education= opportunity. Donation of $55. will provide all school supplies for one female scholar of CW school for an entire year: Go to www.chicuchaswasi.org
