Success Stories Part I

Peruvian Project, Inc  has supported COCID, a local small NGO based in Moyobamba, Peru since our founding in 2007; However, the Rios Owens family has supported COCID since 2002. We are so thrilled to hear about the success stories from the kids who benefit from this program.  Here are a few photos of former students and where they are now.

Peruvian Project, inc main goal is to facilitate the poorest of children to graduate from High School. This is a key factor necessary to succeed.

Meet  Norvil, Jose, Giovanna, Manuel and Hans!

We are so proud of these kids, whether they went on to study more or simply finished high school. The odds against these kids were extremely high. Graduating high school and the lessons they received from COCID prepares them to be productive citizens and to break the cycle of poverty.

Sandro- A success story

One of the biggest frustrations for Peace Corps Volunteers and international aid workers is to ascertain if we are making a difference. You have to trust you are indeed making a difference. Perhaps you will inspire the future President of their country or simply help them reach their own potential and contribute positively in their communities.

The Peruvian Project team is made up of passionate, committed and positive individuals. We trust we can make a difference but from day to day its hard to see if we have indeed made a difference.

We are so proud of all the children and celebrate even the tiniest accomplishments.

Each year, COCID rewards the top kids with caps donated by the Buffalo Bills
