We met Alberto de Cárdenas, CEO of Peru Champs in april 2014 in Lima and we turned fan imimmediately!
Their vision is to connect high-potential kids from low-income families with people around the world who are willing to fund their education. These kids will receive a scholarship to study at Innova Schools - a local chain of schools designed by the award-winning innovation firm IDEO - that provides affordable world-class education to the Peruvian emerging middle class.
Thanks to the birthday's parties of Fanny and Lionel we raised funds and could sponsor 3 kids for one year. Here are "our" kids:
- Roberto Montoya Riviera, 13 years old. He said: "I want to illuminate cities with an alternative form of energy"
- Junior Ochandarte Lazo, 12 years old. He said: "I would like to redesign transportation system"
- Sergio Mariano Zegarra Castillo, 14 years old. He said: "I want to find a cure for cancer"
