"Herzen für eine neue Welt" (Hearts for a New World) was founded as a non-profit organization in December 1998 in Königstein, Germany. Our goal, then as now, is to improve the living conditions of the rural population, especially children, in the Peruvian Andes' Chicón Valley, near Cusco.
Corazones para Perú is our parallel sister organization in Peru. Under our cooperative agreement, Herzen für eine Neue Welt has assumed responsibility for facilitating and financing the projects implemented by Corazones para Perú.Our organizational plan breaks down our structure. At the Articles of Association you can look here.
In the past 13 years, our German-Peruvian teams have thrown themselves, heart and soul, into establishing various social services in the context of helping the people help themselves - a children's village, several schools and kindergartens and two health centers.
We involve the local population in improving education, healthcare, the environment, infrastructure, gender equality and local business development.
Find out more about our project and our work here. An overview of the milestones our projects have achieved over time is available here.
Our funds come primarily from donations not just at the organizational and institutional level, but especially from individuals as well. We work with partners such as the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and other, private organizations.Learn more about our partners.
