Kiya Survivors

Kiya Survivors is a small, non-profit organisation which runs various projects in Peru to provide education, therapy, support and care for children with special needs and disabilities, those who have suffered abuse and neglect, and children and families who live in poverty in the local communities we support.

Did you know...

Kiya Survivors was founded in 2001, since then we have worked with over 400 children and families to help provide disadvantaged children with a brighter future. We run projects in two locations in Peru, Urubamba and Mancora. Each site has a therapy centre and an Outreach Programme to reach families living in poverty in the communities. Urubamba also has a children’s home to support children who have been abandoned by their parents and Mancora has a day centre for young adults with learning difficulties.

What makes Kiya Survivors different

In an age of “Volunteer-Tourism" often causing more harm than good, our aim is always to provide sustainable and ongoing support that is mindful of the local community. Kiya Survivors works alongside local authorities to help instigate change in areas such as appropriate special needs services, support in local schools and workplaces and encouraging the integration of children born to be different so they can thrive in their communities and homes.

Other ways to support

We run Individual, Family and Group Volunteer Programmes and would love to receive people donating their time directly to work on-site here in Peru!

We also run a number of fundraising events through our Active Kiya programme in the UK which people would be welcome to participate in! Active Kiya Supporters take part in events such as the London-Brighton Bike Ride, the Brighton Marathon, and our own sponsored walk event which is to be launched this October.
