Kiya (Quilla) is the Quechua word for moon - the symbol of new beginning.
Kiya Survivors aims to provide a new beginning for children and young people in the global community who have special needs or have been abused or abandoned. We help them gain independence through education and therapy, love and laughter.
Kiya Survivors works alongside local authorities to help instigate change in areas such as appropriate special needs services, support in local schools and workplaces and encouraging the integration of children born to be different so they can thrive in their communities and homes.
We currently work with approximately 1000 individuals annually, all affected by poverty and special needs or abuse.
We currently operate 5 projects in Peru; the Rainbow Centre and Rainbow House in Urubamba (Cuzco), and the Mama Cocha home and Early Bird Centre in Los Organos (Mancora) in the north of the country. We run an Outreach Programme from each area also, which provides VITAL support to families unable to get to the centres.
