Peru

WUSC's project activities in the water sector of Peru began in 1982. Since then, WUSC, along with local partners, has improved water and sanitation services in more than 150 shantytown communities, 130 rural villages, and 15 district capitals benefitting more than a million people.

In 2012, WUSC began a new project to help youth in Lima access employment and training in entrepreneurial skills. This initiative is implemented in partnership with Asociación Atocongo, a local non-governmental organization that is funded by Unión Andina de Cementos SS.AA (UNACEM SS.AA).

Our Uniterra and Students Without Borders® volunteer programs place Canadian volunteers with local partner organizations in the sectors of health and education.
