Help us make a difference in the lives of impoverished Peruvians
WHY AYAVIRI, PERU?
Ayaviri resides in the region of Puno with a population of around 23,000. Although the town is surrounded by a vast and beautiful countryside, the living conditions are harsh and the effects of grave poverty are apparent throughout the territory. Many of its residents are farmers and owners of livestock who, due to the region’s severe climate, struggle to bring in an adequate income. Likewise, the pervasiveness of informal employment allows many employers to avoid paying minimum wage and rarely allows for employee related benefits.
WHO WE ARE
Creatio's mission is to guide all people to encounter the beauty of creation and the Creator through service to the poor, mission trips, outdoor adventure and care for creation.
Through these experiences, we work to create an environment of encounter – encounter with God, with ourselves, with others, and with creation. Creatio members are volunteers, professionals, and friends working to address environmental and human issues on a deeper level. Our goal is to facilitate an active transformation of ourselves and others, as well as the environment. Creatio is a Catholic 501(c)(3) non-profit organization established in Colorado, USA.
