FOREWORD FROM THE FOUNDER AND DIRECTOR Access to quality education is the best opportunity a child can have for a better future With this in mind, we’ve had a busy, but great year at LAFF working towards granting better education and personal development opportunities to vulnerable children and young people in the Cusco region of Peru. This report shows the main actions and outcomes of LAFF. Overall, it has been a great year! Our number of beneficiaries and workshops have increased, and our local networking and our team have grown stronger. Our double mission of providing education and personal development to children, as well as working with local partner organisations and supporting them to become more sustainable and independent, is a tremendous challenge that we continue to work on, all thanks to our supporters. The whole LAFF team would like to give the most sincere thank you to all the individuals and organisations who have donated, volunteered, represented and/or helped LAFF and its local partner during this year. We hope to continue our efforts as we grow together as a community who believe in the importance of providing quality education for all children and young people in Peru, Latin America and the world.

ABOUT LAFF We are a UK registered charity that works alongside 4 partner organisations in Peru, helping disadvantaged children and young people to build a better future.

We believe in creating independence and sustainability by educating, empowering and enabling young people and the organisations that support them. We help vulnerable children to thrive by providing them with the support they need: a good education, employable skills and a sense of self-worth. We also offer direct support to our partner organisations, ensuring their sustainability through capacity-building and technical training as well as incomegeneration and cost reduction activities. Our team is based in Cusco and currently supports four partner organisations and over 100 disadvantaged young people in Cusco and across the Sacred Valley. LAFF is also a part of the ‘Red Semilla’ Network of NGOs in Cusco – the members of which collaborate to improve the working environment for charities operating in the Cusco region.

Getting children into formal education

This year we have supported 111 young people to access formal education by providing funds for school registration fees, uniforms, school materials and transport. There are many obstacles that stop young people from accessing education in the Cusco region. Many rural communities still remain isolated from public services such as schooling, whilst many families can’t even afford school registration fees, uniforms or materials. Neglect, abuse or lack of family support are further significant barriers to education. At LAFF we envision a world in which all young people have access to education and equal opportunities. That's why thanks to our generous supporters we have increased the number of young people that we support by 11% from last year, continuing the progress of previous years.

Wilmer’s story When Wilmer was 11, his father passed away. As his mum was unable to look after 5 young children alone, Wilmer and his brother moved to Azul Wasi. His new home gave him not only a safe and caring environment, but also the ability to attend school where he developed a passion for tourism. Now 22, Wilmer is currently working as a tour guide in Cusco having graduated from Instituto Americana del Cusco with a certificate in English. Azul Wasi is currently home to 21 young boys like Wilmer who are being supported in their formal education and personal development. Not only did LAFF support Wilmer through education while he was in Azul Wasi, but continued to support his career through English and employability workshops. Wilmer even gave our volunteers a tour through the city center as a trial run! Nowadays Wilmer is busy working as a tour guide for a tourism agency in Cusco.

Providing young people access to career guidance and personal development This year we’ve reached 37 young people with career guidance and mentoring, through 100 workshops. In addition to formal education, young people need career guidance, mentorship and support to allow them to develop personal skills. Our workshops included everything from self-esteem to personal health, and communications to vocational training, all the while demonstrating what opportunities are out there for them and how to access them. This year we hosted a career fair for 29 young people. Professionals from different fields including tourism, law and gastronomy spoke about their professional experience and answered questions from eager participants, especially the girls from the Sacred Valley Project.

Mariela's story Mariela is a Sacred Valley Project alumna. She comes from the remote community of Picobamba, located in the Sacred Valley region. Before living in the Ollantaytambo dorm with SVP, she used to take 3 hours to go to school. During her 5 year stay with SVP she got to go to school and play together with other girls that came from different communities of the Andes. She is proud of being an SVP student and she feels grateful for SVP for having given her the opportunity of an education. Mariela finished high school in 2018 and is now studying in a technical institute learning about hospitality administration and restaurant management before starting her career in this industry. She dreams of working everywhere in the hospitality industry to learn as much as she can. She would like to open her own hotel or to work in marketing in the future. Mariela sees herself in the future as a leader in the sector and in her community to be able to give advice to other women. As she said, “as a woman it can be hard because Peru still suffers from “machismo” so it is important for me to support other women”. But SVP’s support did not stop at highschool. SVP offered her a marketing position in 2019 for her to support a supply store that will be built in the Calca dorm. In Mariela's words, “this is going to be very useful for my future in my hospitality career. Now I have to study for 3 years (6 semesters) and then I will kick off my career. For now I am able to work and study at the same time thanks to SVP”.

Improving partner sustainability and capacity This year we have continued to build the capacity of our 4 local partner organisations, helping them to provide vital support for young people At LAFF, we value quality over quantity. For this reason we have continued to work closely with our 4 partner organisations in Cusco. We admire their dedication in providing safe and caring environments. However, much like other organisations in Cusco, our partners face challenges from limited resources to low capacities. As such, we are committed to supporting our partners to continue to deliver and improve their services in an effective and sustainable manner. In 2018-2019 we provided 9 capacity building workshops for partner organisations, covering a range of topics such as financial organisation, accountancy, and strategic planning. Our goal is to facilitate greater independence.

Social Enterprise Development - We have continued to provide marketing and financial management support to the two social enterprises at Casa Mantay; Taller Mantay, a workshop with leather goods and arte floral. - We worked with Azul Wasi in planning for the development of a flower cultivation project, estimating and projecting costs, supporting the pilot stage where 25 flowers were planted in their greenhouse. Unfortunately, due to the natural ph-levels of the soil the project did not perform as well as expected. Nevertheless it has been an insight learning experience which we can build from in the future. - We provided a tourism expert volunteer for a year at Mosqoy for their ‘Mosqoy field school’ social enterprise project around sustainable tourism.

Meet Carmen: The tutor at the heart of SVP Ollantaytambo Following on from last year we continue our interview series to shine a light on some of the incredible people and the work that they do ‘behind the scenes’ at LAFF and its partners. In this compelling story ‘house mum’ Carmen discusses her role and what it means to look after 17 girls away from home.

"WHEN APPLYING FOR THE JOB, THEY TOLD ME I WOULD PRACTICALLY COMPLETE THE ROLE OF A ‘MUM’" It is a very big term because as a ‘mum’ I have many functions: talking to the girls, organising their schedules, preparing meals, helping with homework, talking about personal hygiene, seeing how they feel – if they’re ill, happy, calm – to find out all of that you just have to live with them, day by day. "I HAVE TWO CHILDREN OF MY OWN" My daughter is twelve, so they are like my daughters – I see all the girls as my daughters. I give them the same treatment with a lot of love. I’m very patient and sometimes I think they take advantage of it, but that’s why we’re here, isn’t it? "WHAT WE DO IS SO IMPORTANT BECAUSE THERE ARE MANY CHILDREN WHO CANNOT EASILY ACCESS EDUCATION" There are girls who live in remote communities who do not have a school nearby. Some would have to walk for four or five hours to get to school, so it’s quite a challenge for them.

Latin American Foundation for the Future. Annual Report 2017 - 2018

"SPEAKING AS A MOTHER – IT IS QUITE DIFFICULT TO ACCESS A GOOD EDUCATION IN PERU." The project is a great help because first it is a place to stay, and then we provide food and everything they need for school. In the afternoon they have tutors to help with homework, and the main part of the work we do is to give them love and patience, as well as a space to talk, and listen to them. The problem is that often in remote communities there is no one in the schools who can monitor or control the educational processing, so there are teachers who are not doing their job well but nothing is done about it. "THE BEST WAY TO EMPOWER GIRLS IS TO TEACH THEM, SO THAT THEY CAN MAKE THEIR OWN DECISIONS FOR THEMSELVES." I wanted to work with children because I like to help. I like to share my knowledge, and I know that I can do something for the girls here that they really need. So if I have the ability to teach the child something good, I know that it will change her life and improve her opportunities in the future. Generally, the girls feel happier here.
