From the beginning, Nexos Comunitarios has always followed its Development Hypothesis.
Health and education are our areas of focus. Our projects were spearheaded by our first Exploration Work about the community: FUTURE OF CUNCANI: The importance of Human Rights and Interculturality (2015). This research highlights our community partner and the results of the Progress out of Poverty Index (PPI) application.
Please find below useful information about two of our main projects in Cusco region. Feel free to send us an email for further information.
School Lunch Program (Health), 2013-19: at the request of our community partner, Cuncani, and our assessment of the government’s assistance in the community. Nexos Comunitarios provided nutritious lunches to 100% of the children in kindergarten and multi-grade primary school. By 2015, not a single child in Cuncani was affected by anemia, which has long plagued children living in remote Andean villages due to single crop diets.

Kick-Off Project (Education), 2017-20: Nexos Comunitarios implemented several initiatives to address education in Cuncani. Starting in 2019, Nexos Comunitarios introduced a pilot program called Kick-off, an innovative education approach, using the power of sports to promote quality education in marginalized communities.

All Nexos Comunitarios projects stopped at the beginning of our first lockdown (March 16, 2020).
Our current efforts aim to provide humanitarian assistance first with components of sustainability. We will also continue with our previous projects.
Since the start of the pandemic and throughout the year, Nexos Comunitarios has been providing food to 92 families (nearly 400 people) in the Cusco region.
At the beginning of January 2021, we launched #SomosAyllu. a project that contributes to SDG 1, SDG 2 and SDG 3. #SomosAyllu focuses on Food Security, Family Agriculture and Fish Farming.
Ayllu (Quechua word) is a lived, ongoing experience of community identity.
The resilience of the citizens of the Andes is remarkable, but they need our compassion to mitigate the effects of the pandemic and have an adequate standard of living.
According to UNICEF Perú poverty may reach 30.2% in 2021 in the country.
