Education of poor children with disabilities in Peru

Ayacucho, Peru – The project consists of facilitating the inclusion of poor children with disabilities in the regular education system in Ayacucho, Peru. This will be done through a personalized follow-up to the beneficiary children, giving them sessions of academic reinforcement, continuous visits of the schools, sensitization of teachers and classmates. All this will be reinforced by the work of the multidisciplinary team of the Wasi Esperanza rehabilitation center, that works more than 6 years in this area.

76% of people with disabilities haven’t completed their basic studies in Ayacucho, Peru.

According to the 2017 Census, 85.5% of them only initiated primary school. This limits their possibilities of accessing a job and of improving quality of life. This project intervenes directly with poor children with disabilities. It facilitates their access to the regular education system and provides a personalized follow-up until their inclusion is achieved, improving their chances of a better quality of life.
