  • Project 2: Reto Kantaya - a program to sell to private schools that empowers their students to encourage them to believe in themselves and to help develop empathy in the future leaders of Peru, the plan has four steps: experience, reflection, empowerment and sharing with Kantaya’s beneficiaries.
