Makikita Quykuway means “Give me your hand” in Quechua, the ancient language of the Incas. Guided by this principle, our organization has brought together a network of compassionate social services professionals dedicated to improving the lives of the underprivileged in Peru.
Makikita Quykuway Volunteer Program is a non-profit organization located in Huancayo, Peru. Our volunteer organization was established in 2006 and is recognized as a non-profit legal entity by the Peruvian government. Makikita Quykuway works closely with relevant non-profit organizations, government institutions, and foreign volunteers to improve the lives of local underserved Peruvians.
We envision a just world based on unity, respect and love, where children have equal opportunities for personal and professional development.
Makikita Quykuway’s mission is to improve the quality of life of the poorest people in Peru. To fulfill this mission, we support local non-profit organizations and also utilize foreign volunteer workers´ skills and talents. To best utilize our volunteer workers to their full capacities, our organization supports volunteer workers´ personal growth, professional development, and cultural immersion.
