Founded in 1988, Tiquipaya Wasi is a youth home for boys who have lived on the streets. The organization helps these young people to reintegrate into society, providing psychological support, a safe living lugas, and classes in various subjects that facilitate future employment. Performing Life has worked with Tiquipaya Wasi for three years. Many boys staying there participate in our music workshops, and boys who have started with one of our projects have been admitted to Tiquipaya Wasi. This collaboration has enabled more young people to benefit from the support of both institutions. http://www.tiquipayawasi.org/
