Our Story

In 2016, an official leadership team started forming for Instituto Perucano (IP).  The current members represent a growing need for innovative leadership for our communities and to address some of the most pressing issues facing society in Peru and globally. Our theory of change and contribution to society is through direct facilitation of opportunities, knowledge, and professionalism.

Our theory of change and contribution to society is through direct facilitation of opportunities, knowledge, and professional development opportunities in Peru and throughout the world, so our community not only stays competitive in our globalizing society but also leads in areas that affect their lives directly.  We currently are working in areas of agriculture, education, environment, and innovation.

We can’t help everyone, but…Everyone can help someone.”

– Dr. Loretta Scott








What We Do

We engage young professionals through opportunities within Peru and internationally to facilitate the opportunity to train professionals in Peru to progress towards the achievement of the United National Sustainable Development Goals.  The SDG’s guide us and inform us of our collective work.

With the help of Instituto Perucano I was able to make connections with CEBE special needs schools in Peru and realize my international volunteer goals through our work at Nika Project.  We provide Assistive Technology support to teachers and differently-abled students globally. Perucano was the key to our success, and we look forward to our next volunteer exchange.
