Jarapay School

The Peruvian Amazon Training School is the first technical school created to revolutionize the current critical situation happening in this extraordinary area of Peru and the planet through education and skils development. Created with the intention of building-up a new economy in one of the most critical mining areas in Peru, currently suffering from attacks by local violent groups. Many mining families and local people who subsisted from formal mining are unable to progress due to the disconnection and blockages to their own working areas by a wave of violent groups. This school is created to become an oasis for the local economy used to depend on mining. It aims to bring new opportunities of personal and professional development for the miners, their families and the local people through jewellery, design and research and computer sciences.
