Kantaya is a non-profit organization that works in the district of Ventanilla, in the province of Callao, Peru, and provides spaces where kids between the ages of 5 and 15 years old study after school.
During the Covid-19 crisis, the organization has also focused on helping feed the families of the beneficiaries of their educational programs, who live in very vulnerable conditions. Help Peru’s donation enabled Kantaya to deliver basic food baskets in June for 260 families in need (approximately 1,300 people), which provided 8 days of food supplies. Another delivery in December 2020 provided baskets for 300 families (approximately 1,500 people), containing food and Christmas gifts for children.
