The Team


The team at Mama Cocha consists of: House Mum; Teacher; Speech and Physiotherapist; Psychologist; Social Worker and a watchman. 


They are all local professionals who are working unbelievably hard and making a huge difference to young people’s lives. There is also a Project Director who oversees the Centre and who has been working with us for 12 years now.


The Mama Cocha centre, based at Los Organos (Mancora) in northern Peru, was built and opened in 2008 with the help of Copenhagen International School (CIS).


It was originally a home for children with special needs living in vulnerable situations, but changed direction after it’s service users were successfully re integrated back in to their family homes, in 2015.


Now, the Centre runs as an after school program for young people with special needs who need somewhere safe to come in the afternoons whilst their parents work.


A teacher ensures the after school kids have plenty of activities to do including:

-   Arts and crafts

-   Gardening

-   Play

-   Homework club

-   Cooking


We have a ‘Mum’ who works in the Centre creating a homely environment for the children and cooks lunch for them/gives them cuddles etc.


Mama Cocha continues to receive funding from CIS and they continue to visit the project every 2 years.


The Centre consists of 3 large rooms for workshops and emergency housing, a lounge, a kitchen, 2 bathrooms and open spaces in which to run around.
