Twenty two years after graduating from the high school in Paccha that Fundación Comunidad started, we were tickled to get an update from some of our initial scholarship students from 2010. Julian Lopez AnccasiBorn in Paccha, he was orphaned at the age of 8. There were seven brothers, he was the only one to go to high school. At that time, in 2004, Comunidad started the secondary school in Paccha, set up a kitchen, bought the ingredients for the students' daily...

An exciting school year in the AndesComunidad was able to get 12 new sewing machines to our three rural Andean communities, during the month of July. The machines are for the students and their families, and their response has been robust! We are excited by their excitement.

We hope the machines will open up a source of income as they develop their skills, and yes there is now a sewing class offered.The agricultural project...

The Computer start upThe ‘school’ year is coming to a close in the rural communities we support. Getting 8 computers and a hot spot to Patahuasi was the best thing we could do during a pandemic. They have lost alot of learning opportunities but the computers helped make some of that up and created some excitement during these challenging times. We are committed to see them through the 2022 school year as well as pursuing two vocational projects for post secondary life. One project involves baking...
