Social Work

The income generated by ticket sales and merchandising of the Andean Baroque Route will be directed to the maintenance of the temples and to improve the living conditions of their neighbours

Educational/recreational centres have been implemented in Huaro, Andahuaylillas, Urcos and Ocongate which include dining rooms, play areas, computer workshops and libraries, which, together benefit more than 1500 children.

In Huaro, there is a lutheria workshop (the art of marking musical instruments) which forms young people for three years so that they can manufacture guitars, violins and charangos.

In Andahuaylillas, in agreement with CCAIJO, free technical training is offered in hotel management and tourism for youth in the area.

In addition, health care and social assistance campaigns take place, reaching more than 2000 people per year.

In several villages, in the valley and in Ocongate, there is the network of the public defender's office for women and children, whose work is articulated with different public and private institutions to serve more than 1,800 cases every year.

Social programs, which are made possible thanks to the benefits obtained from the Andean Baroque Route, cater primarily to vulnerable women and children in the province of Quispicanchi, and is managed by the Jesuit organization Wayra, as part of the Jesuit Service Network for Solidarity.
