Not all women have self-esteem, but it is a good thing to have. In the country not many women have it because of family reasons such as violence and maltreatment.

Collette Foundation is focused on improving the quality of life of children in their partner communities worldwide.

PHOP is a month-long medical rotation organized by medical students at the Cleveland Clinic Lerner College of Medicine of Case Western Reserve University. Other medical professionals have also joined in the effort and volunteer their time and services to improve the lives of the people in Peru. The project and partnership with Peruvian Hearts began in 2009, with the main goal to improve lives through basic medical care of the people in Lamay and the surrounding mountain villages in the Sacred Valley. This also provides an international experience for students and healthcare professionals interested in global healthcare.
