Kiya Survivors was founded by British woman, Suzy Butler in 2001 with the aim of providing spaces to educate and offer therapy to children living in high risk situations or who have health or learning difficulties.
Kiya works with local authorities, providing them with the staff, tools and space they need to eventually run the projects Kiya helps them set up, without the NGOs support. All of our 25 employed staff in Peru except for 1, are Peruvian professionals from the local communities.
Kiya (Quilla) is the Quechua word for moon - the symbol of new beginning.
Kiya Survivors aims to provide a new beginning for Peruvian children and young people who have a disability, learning difficulty or have been abused or abandoned; helping them gain independence through education and therapy, love and laughter.
We currently support over 200 children, young people and their families.
