LAFF is a UK registered charity that works in Peru to give vulnerable and disadvantaged children and young adults the tools they need to build themselves a better future
LAFF currently work with partner organisations in Lima and Cusco in the Peruvian Andes, a region plagued by extreme poverty and social inequality. Lack of employment and poor education opportunities drive many poor rural families towards the urban centres in search of work and a better life. This trend means overcrowding, high unemployment and homelessness in Peru's cities, with many children suffering family violence or forced into employment at a young age to secure food to eat. High numbers of children are taken into care, by local organisations, as a result of extreme poverty, rape, violence and abuse, with many more vulnerable children and young people living and working on the streets.
We envision a world where children and young people are equipped with essential skills and are able to access quality education and employment opportunities, to break out of poverty and to build a better future for themselves and others.
