DescriptionThe Non-Schoolar Initial Education Programs (PRONEI) were created to offer an alternative care for children who do not have access to a formal education, recognizing the importance of the educational role of the community in marginal rural and urban areas. They represent an action of social promotion with children in communities to support them and their mothers, as a form of protection and attention to their basic needs. The current coverage includes children from 3 to 5 years of marginal urban and rural areas throughout the country. Each mother of the community covers a shift to guard the children in order to ensure a self-managed nursery.
The Ayacucho branch of the Brigada de Voluntarios Bolivarianos del Peru created this workcamp in order to support the community in the maintenance and refurbishment of the often-neglected classrooms and the construction of games for the playground areas

PlaceAyacucho is situated at an altitude of 2,746 m. It is characterized by its pleasant climate, temperate and dry and it is one of the most remarkable architectural and artistic ensembles in the country. Known as the «City of Churches» and «City of Majesty», Ayacucho has more than thirty churches and colonial temples of Renaissance, baroque and mestizo style, which keep in their interior real works of art such as paintings, images and beautiful altarpieces carved in wood and bathed in gold leaf.
Ayacucho is also renowned at international level for its artistic manifestations, reason for which it was declared as "Capital of Popular Art and Crafts of Peru".
One of its touristic attractions is the Archaeological Complex of Wari, one of the most extensive legacies of Peru. The complex, ancient capital of the pre-Inca empire of the Wari people, covers an area of 2,200 hectares, where you will discover entire neighborhoods built by stone and mud.
Another site of interest is the independence mausoleum, built on the battlefield where the Independents army lead by the Mariscal José de Sucre vanquished the Spanish Virrey obtaining the independence of South America from the colonial power.
Quinoa Village - This is an ideal scenario for the practice of experiential tourism. The people of Quinua still respect and follow their traditions. In the town center you can visit an archeological museum presenting some Wari items.
