We Create Awareness

Millions of Peruvians want to help but don’t know how. We provide them with a way of not only helping people in need but also learning about the importance of recycling. Today in Peru, recycling is not considered a priority that’s why through recycling campaigns and environmental awareness initiatives we teach the importance of recycling and the impact we can create together. We also promote the reduction of plastic use.

Did you know…

… that in Peru 20 thousand tons of solid waste is generated daily and only 15% is recycled?

We want to be part of the change!

#BePartOfTheChange

We educate. We recycle. We help.

In the absence of a national recycling system, we took the responsibility of collecting the plastic waste in our community. However, our mission to humanize Peru goes beyond that. That is why to achieve our mission, it is necessary to follow certain steps. The first step is to educate ourselves about what happens on our planet and the opportunities we have to generate a positive impact. After educating ourselves, we take action by recycling our waste to prevent it from damaging our environment. Finally, we make sure to close the cycle by helping vulnerable Peruvians with blankets, ponchos, and socks. This way, we provide a sustainable platform where the smallest grain of sand contributes to a change.

How did it all begin?

Our Story

In the absence of a national recycling system, we took the responsibility of collecting the plastic waste in our community. However, our mission to humanize Peru goes beyond that. That is why to achieve our mission, it is necessary to follow certain steps. The first step is to educate ourselves about what happens on our planet and the opportunities we have to generate a positive impact. After educating ourselves, we take action by recycling our waste to prevent it from damaging our environment. Finally, we make sure to close the cycle by helping vulnerable Peruvians with blankets, ponchos, and socks. This way, we provide a sustainable platform where the smallest grain of sand contributes to a change. It all started in 2016 when we were 13 years old. We were only teenagers yet we dreamed of creating a social project to help Peru. Without knowing what to do, we began researching our country’s problems. We then learned that we suffer from severe problems regarding poverty and pollution. After a few months of research, we were able to find a solution that helped solve both problems. Our idea was simple, recollect plastic bottles, recycle them into blankets, and then donate these to People in need all over the country. That’s how Ayudando Abrigando was born.

Passion for Helping

The simple acts in life are what complete our happiness. Behind each donation, there is hard work that requires hours of commitment. Despite everything, seeing the people and all their smiles when making a donation makes all our work compensate for an incredible experience. Our donations go beyond just delivering blankets, socks, and ponchos. We believe that the most important thing is to create a relationship with the people we are helping. Moments like these fulfill us with joy. Having the opportunity to share with people from all over Peru shows us how culturally rich our country is and the wonderful people who are part of it.
