PATHere.org is a non-profit organization founded in Pennsylvania in 2020 by a group of Peruvian-Americans. We are united by an altruistic desire to provide, as feasible, assistance and a variety of essential services to the Peruvian-American community.
In PATHere.org many of us have experienced first-hand the challenges, difficulties, and sacrifices that all immigrants face when they move to the United States. We know well, just to name a few, how difficult it is to adapt to a new society and to learn the language, how frustrating it can be to find information about educational and employment opportunities, how challenging it is to find consular help or information, or how to establish a network with Peruvian communities.
PATHere.org is a new and vibrant organization that was founded in 2020. A group of individuals with roots in different parts of Peru who also reside in the United States of America came together to form a local organization to serve the Peruvian American community. Our journey has been challenging due to COVID-19 and its devastating effects on our communities, here and abroad. The pandemic has forced us to be more resourceful and to find new ways to achieve our objectives. Thanks to the organizational talent, and the diverse and extensive background of our members, thus far, we have secured our 501 (c) (3) nonprofit status, elected our first Board of Directors, and established a social media presence via Facebook, Instagram, and our PATHere.org web site. In 2021, we focused our efforts on developing a virtual program to commemorate Peru’s Bicentennial Independence Day and implemented social, cultural, and educational programs. PATHere.org has attracted individuals with an extensive background and experience in community advocacy, strategic planning and nonprofit, academic, and business organizations.
Our members have backgrounds in many fields. We all share the common vision and mission of assisting the Peruvian community.
