Winnetka-Northfield Rotarian Rik Borjesson and his family will soon be traveling to Peru. While there, he will be visiting Pinchollo, the most remote village in the Peruvian Andes. 

Rik plans to bring school supplies to the local school. In such a poor region, the schools have very limited essential supplies for their students. 

Please make a difference in a child´s education by donating for their most essential school supplies. Pinchollo is the most remote village in the Peruvian Andes at 11,000 ft above sea level. The main source of income is farming, the median income in Pinchollo per family is estimated to be 2 dollars a day.

With 10 dollars you can send 1 student to school with their most essential supplies.
