"We are tired of feeling sorry for ourselves", said Father José Chuquillanqui, pastor of Manchay, district of Pachacamac, in the course of the Peruvian program Diálogo de Fe.
A note sent to Fides says that
the pastor talked about the great commitment of the Church of Manchay,
where he conducts the program "Work formation for young people at risk",
explaining that the institution does not want to "cry poverty" and
seeks to give tools to the needy so that they can achieve their goals
with self-employment: "Let us work for their self-esteem".
Chuquillanqui also explained how his project works and what his goal is:
"the social project of Manchay is divided into education, health and
human rights, with a strong commitment to combat sexual and domestic
violence. We support entrepreneurship in favor of young people, so that
they have the tools to get out of poverty through education".
