INTIWAWA is a young Non-governmental Organization that is located in Arequipa/Peru as
well as Emsdetten/Germany. The Name INTIWAWA is Quechua and means “Children of the Sun”
The Primary goal of our Organization is to help young men and woman and –together with
them- improve their everyday situation. At this point we mainly work in San Isidro, a
small village of about 90 Families, located approximately 45 minutes from the City-
The Inhabitants of this village suffer from malnutrition, lack of education, alcoholism
and domestic violence. Missing sanitary arrangements and unclean Water lead to Diseases
caused by the lack of Hygiene. Furthermore there is a constant shortage of financial
capacity to afford basic human requirements such as medicine or a proper water supply system.
The aim of INTIWAWA is to fight existing problems as well as research and fight the cause
of these problems in order to prevent their development in the first place.
To achieve these goals, we need as much support as we can get from motivated and
energetic voluntary workers.
As already mentioned above, the primary goal of INTIWAWA is to help. Doing that, it is
very important to us to design and perform this help as efficient as possible.
That leads to three points that distinguish us from most other NGOs
1. Our projects are meant to help the ones in need in Peru, not to merely keep
westerners busy. We will therefore try to allocate your interests and abilities in way
that you are an efficient help for us and that your projects match with your
expectations. As a result we care about a thorough communication with you before you
start working in Arequipa.
2. The feature that distinguishes us most from other organizations is our flexibility.
Being very grateful for every help we can get, we want to give you as little limits and
conditions as possible. That means, we do not have Deadlines for applications or a
minimum working time. Even if you have already started the project, you are still able to
change or even cancel your projects.
3. Our idea of voluntary work is neither to be paid nor to pay you for your work. Just
like anyone of our team does not receive any financial reward for his work. Everybody
works 100% voluntarily
