PIARA Community Outreach and Development

Outside of the cities, the rural countryside of highland Ancash, Peru is made up of Quechua-speaking farming and herding communities. Working within these communities in the Province of Huaylas has brought to our attention the challenges many rural Ancashinos face in their daily lives. An important goal of PIARA is to identify specific development issues of importance to the communities we work with and find ways to make a difference for the future. The issues are many and are associated with a sustained state of poverty: education, infrastructure, and health are the main areas in need of attention and improvement. PIARA is actively collaborating with these communities to address these concerns.
