Help Peruvians in Need with iamthebridge.org

While in Peru I learned that education in many parts of the country is at best limited, if even existent; and that many families pay for their children to go to private schools with little money for every-day expenses.  While the level of poverty in the country may not seem as obviously apparent as in other places in the world, there are Peruvian families in major need of healthcare, and even food.

A friend that I met while in Arequipa introduced me to iamthebridge.org, an organization working to bridge the gap between resources and those in need in Peru.  Hugo is working on their campaign, to help raise awareness and funds for the cause via social media.

Here is a short introductory video from the organization’s website:

Peru is a country that was immediately dear to my heart, so I thought that I too would help spread the word about this worthy organization.

Help comes in many forms, spread the word by liking iamthebridge on Facebook, and following on twitter.  To pledge or volunteer visit iamthebridge.org.
