Latin American Foundation for the Future is a UK registered charity which works with partner organisations in Peru to help disadvantaged children and young people to build a better future. LAFF believe in creating independence, not dependence. This is crucial in our approach to both children and young people, and the organisations which directly support them.
We also believe in sustainability, and aim to achieve it for those we help through educating, empowering and enabling. We help street, working and vulnerable children to thrive, supporting them into adulthood with a good education, life skills, employable skills and a sense of self-worth. We help young people’s organisations by ensuring their self-sustainability.
Our aim is to enable projects to be independent of outside help, not dependent on it. This help takes the form of capacity-building, technical training as well as income-generation and cost reduction activities.
