HOW WE WORK
We are a small and dedicated team. Passionate about what we do, we work to ensure that as much funding as possible gets to the people and places that need it most to grow the Peru community.
“It's not how much we give but how much love we put into giving.”
IP Projects: Center for Innovation
Everyone that supports the work of Perucano has started as a volunteer. In order to manifest a project into a project of Perucano each leader has vetted their interests and projects with members of each constituent group that makes up Perucano. Our current projects represent not only a training mechanism for professional development of volunteers, but specifically a response to the call to action towards achieving our collective sustainable development goals in Peru
The core leadership of Perucano is represented by the EC. In order to form part of the commission each member has contributed or has pledged time and resources in order to move towards the development of action projects. Each member has the opportunity to lead their own initiatives, as approved by the advisory board and commission members.
International Advisory Board
Similar to our Executive Commission, our advisory board serves as a moral compass and guides our collective work. Board members work as volunteers and mentors for our staff, as well as contribute social capital to move projects forward. Before a project is approved by the Executive Commission, board members shape projects and inform decisions of the executive commissio.
A key community stakeholder group is our local leaders. We develop alliances and collaboration on the development and implementation of projects throughout Peru. As with the other groups, our community leaders support our work by volunteering and leading collaboration through initiatives and organizations they lead.
