Colibri

Colibri is a project where children who are working on the streets can be childe again for a while. In Cusco there are many kids working on the streets, they sell candy, cigarettes, are cleaning shoes, etc. Often they are forced by their parents to work or they don`t have parents and working on the street is the only way to make some money to eat.

Colibri ProjectEach afternoon, these kids can go to Project Colibri, where they do educational and entertaining activities. Every afternoon about 25 to 30 children visit the project. There is one coordinator present everyday to organize the activities for the children, she is assisted by volunteers.

The age of the children who visit the project is between 5 and 15 years. In addition to the activities the children can get psychological help and assistance in planning their future. The kids are encouraged to go to school.
