WALL London works closely with Amantani - a charity dedicated to providing a well-rounded education to the children of Ccorca, Peru.

See after break to read more about their amazing work and how you can contribute to the futures of the children of Ccorca...
Thanks to Amantani's work, the children and young people of Ccorca had access to more 1,200 hours of school, improved their numeracy, literacy and ICT skills, and have improved their health and nutrition as well as improved on their confidence and self esteem greatly.
Meet My World
There is widespread discrimination towards indigenous people in Peru. The 'Meet My World' project aims to help children celebrate their cultural identity. Amantani have worked alongside the children to write and present short films about the traditions in their communities since 2012, which is proving to be a hugely important process in helping children to take pride in their indigenous roots. In 2014, 12 children made a series of short instructional films, sharing traditional skills from their communities. The films received an unbelievable response from all over the world where they were seen in over 110 countries by more than 40,000 people.
