Sumaq Pacha

WHO we are

The charitable foundation Sumaq Pacha has been founded as a response to social inequality and educational deficiencies in Peru. The foundation’s name comes from Quechua, the native language of the Andean Region of South America, and translates as a “Better World” - Sumaq meaning "better" and Pacha meaning "world.”

Not only one, but everyone needs a future

WHAT we do

The goal and mission behind creating the Pacha Sumaq Foundation is to provide support for the most needy in the area of education, which currently represents a fundamental pillar for the development of children and the youth.
The ultimate purpose of Sumaq Pacha is therefore to finance and develop educational projects for the children and young enthusiasts who seek new opportunities in order to find the way which would enable them to create this "Better World" that we all long for.
