About the local hosting organizationProvide alternative ways of life through love, ethics, discipline and responsibility; all of which are based in an effective use of the material, cultural and spiritual resources that each person or community possesses. Objectives : - To be part of the GREAT TRANSFORMATIOn' through education and development with love and responsibility - For these reasons, the objective at Yanapay is to present to the children the possibility of knowing other ways of living in Peru and on this planet, and to show them that there are places in the world for respect, tolerance, and love. - Everyday we create an atmosphere where, by showing example, it becomes natural to demonstrate the values that the world needs. - I believe that responsible love is different from idealistic love. Idealistic love is like a flower with beautiful colors but no seeds. It is also like having a cycle of life and death that leaves beautiful memories but does not make meaningful societal change.
