Seeing a child and their family turn the corner and become a family after months of therapy and support to help them learn to love their children, to see them actually accepting and loving them. It’s a special thing.
Suzy Butler, Founder of Kiya Survivors


Kiya Survivors has the support of some amazing long term sponsors – we are very grateful to them for their incredible investment and belief in what we do. Here are some of our present and past sponsors who have made a huge impact on our work.

CIS Team Peru

Long term commitment sponsoring Mama Cocha
Team Peru was originally founded by Copenhagen International School teacher, Ben Ward, in 2005, with the objective of raising funds for Kiya Survivors and giving young people from CIS the opportunity to participate in the Kiya Survivors group programmes.

Team Peru is currently led by 3 teachers from Copenhagen International School, Lorraine, Charlotte and Mark, who work tirelessly to fund raise the basic running costs for our skills workshop group and therapy for children with learning difficulties, disabilities and living in high risk environments in Los Organos.

They raise £9,600 a year at present, essential funding that has a vast impact on the Mama Cocha centre service users.

Kiya Survivors not only create better living conditions, medical attention and life skills for the children involved in their programme, it also builds a stronger community and taking a lead on given these children the right to be a part of it.

For our students, being a part of the Mama Cocha has opened their eyes to parts of the world that they would otherwise never have seen. For all of them this is an amazing personal experience which is very unique.

Thanks to dedicated staff at the two children’s centres and the careful reporting provided, we trust our donation is well spent, directly assisting those people who need our help the most. As a school, we at Copenhagen International School would thoroughly recommend other schools to get involved with Kiya Survivores on one or more of their projects.

The Sorrell Foundation

Annual sponsorship of the Tres Pasitos Early Stimulation programme
The Sorrell Foundation logoIn 2016 The Sorrel Foundation directed by Lady Christina Falcon Sorrel, pledged their initial £12,000 anual sponsorship to running the Tres Pasitos Early Stimulation programme in the Mama Cocha complex in Los Organos, Piura.

They continued with their support in 2017 by pledging a further £16,800 to enable us to expand our programme and re-employ a Psychologist and Work Shop Teacher.

Their support is life changing for the 30 families the Tres Pasitos and therapy centre provides.

Greg Vistnes

Private sponsor of Rainbow House
Greg is a private sponsor for The Rainbow House and makes significant financial contributions to the running of the Rainbow House following his daughter’s experience as a volunteer. His contribution is hugely appreciated as it ensures the ongoing care of the children living there.

Clear Vision Accountancy

Sponsorship of Physiotherapy project
Kiya was lucky enough to recruit Rob Walsh as their Treasurer in 2017. Robs company, Clear Vision Accountancy Group, has since taken on the sponsorship of one of our Physiotherapy projects.

I was introduced to Kiya by a friend and it was an easy decision to sponsor children which actually makes a real difference to these kids. I have now been contributing for 14 years. Suzy – Founder of Kiya – was also looking for a financial trustee, so we spoke and met and her kindness and ambition came across so clearly. It was an easy decision – we are helping on the financial side of Kiya and paying for their bookkeeper. We are also contributing monthly to a specialist, helping children on-site. We are paying on behalf of our clients and every time we finish a tax return and set of accounts we let the client know what we have contributed on their behalf.
