Latin American Foundation for the Future (LAFF) is a UK registered charity which works with partner organisations in Peru to help disadvantaged children and young people to build themselves a better future. To do this, LAFF enables marginalised young people to access educational opportunities and vocational training, as well as supporting young people’s organisations to succeed through income-generation, cost reduction initiatives and capacity building for staff. LAFF believes in creating independence, not dependence and this is crucial in our approach to both children and young people, and the organisations which directly support them.
How we helped
LUSH's donation is a huge contribution to the education and personal and professional development of the young people of Azul Wasi, a home for boys who have lived or worked on the streets or been abandoned by their parents. The donation enables us to pay for their education and a tutor to help them get the most out of school, as well as books and laptops to help prepare them for their future and give them the skills and knowledge to be independent and successful upon leaving Azul Wasi.
