We have created this blog, “Diary of an NGO”, with the goal of sharing with you the day-to-day activities of our team, as well as, to give you the opportunity to get immersed in our world so that you can experience how it is to work in a non-profit organization and get to know the lives of those we serve.
MiPequeñaAyuda – MySmallHelp Peru helps people with disabilities or those coming from low socio-economic families, achieve a brighter future primarily by providing access to education, health care and skills training. We are more than an organisation, we are one big family that works together with the beneficiaries and the communities with the shared goal of improving their quality of life.
We raise funds to sustain our organization and enhance our projects located in Ollantaytambo, a town part of the Sacred Valley of the Incas, in Cusco, Peru. All donations received are allocated according to the individualized plans set for each of our beneficiaries – people with disabilities or living in poverty – part of our Integral Support Program, and our other projects within the communities. We also raise funds by offering accommodation at MySmallHelp Volunteer House, which is a social project itself. Therefore, our beneficiaries (24 to date) and their families, benefit from the donations received and the aid of our organization.
The philosophy of MySmallHelp is that if more and more people give their small help, every person will be able to enjoy their basic human rights. That’s why giving back without expecting anything in return, sharing moments of love, laughter and teaching those who need to be taught, are attitudes that we promote among our volunteers and the people that we support.
We want to share this blog with you and with all our #MySmallHelpers: former and current volunteers, donors, beneficiaries, friends, partner organizations & allies; as well as, with whoever wants to follow the day-to-day activities of an NGO, and why not, become part of our family!
If you want to get involved somehow, you can write to us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Your small help can make a BIG difference!
Let’s get started...
