About The Region

We primarily work with a growing number of families squatting in the Manantay slums of Pucallpa, Peru. They live without access to clean water, proper shelter, the means to an education & local first-line health care. Pucallpa is a frontier city of 400 000 at the edge of the Amazon Jungle in Peru. Within its downtown core, Pucallpa is rapidly developing with restaurants, shopping malls and plazas popping up all over town. However, on the outskirts of town are over 15,000 squatters who have travelled from more remote areas of this region in Peru, carrying hopes of opportunity.
