A few surfboards were enough to start this journey about 15 years ago. Diego Villarán´s idea was simple, but revolutionary: teach surfing to the children of alto Perú community and keep them away from crime. What started as an activity became a proyect which resulted in a team and then a family.
Cultural festivals, redesigning public spaces, a high-performance center, community development, consulting services and the use of sport to promote mental health are some of the things we do today thanks to a miltidisciplinary team commited to a common purpose
We believe that the world would be a better place if more people recognize the power they have to change their lives and their community.
Transform Alto Perú into a safe and healthy community for children by providing learning and development oportunities and expanding our model to other communities that require it.
We believe that: All boys and girls can develop their full potential.
All adults can live in community.
We have the strenght to be a community based on empathy and trust.
Adaptability allows us to recognize changes and to make effective decision making. Finally, our principle is to be commited to our purpose.
By becoming a citizen of Alto Perú, you will be helping more girls and boys develop their potential using sport and games as tools of tranform.
Alto Peru is the name of the community where our work started. Wheter we work with other communities now, Alto Peru is still our home.
The most important thing about an organization is the people that constitute it. We are a multidisciplinary and young team. We are passionate to innovate and be behind real and sustainable changes wherever we go.
