High Tides International is a Canadian non profit working in Northern Peru alongside children and youth to help them reach their full potential through various creative and educative outlets. We need your help to get our programs to the next level. More ...


We work to provide an outlet for education, creativity, and self-exploration in communities where resources are needed, and we are starting in Northern Peru.

Our vision is for individuals to grow up to be healthy, have accessible higher education, the tools to reach their full potential, and meet their personal goals.

To make this vision a reality we have woven together 3 programs that we believe are making a difference in the lives of children and youth. These programs include: a local children's library, yoga classes, and a Girls Club.

We are fundraising to give our programs more opportunities and expand our reach to more communities.

Starting in March 2016 we will be opening up a center in the town of Lobitos, Peru through which our programs will run. This center is essential to the organization because it's located in the heart of the community, where participants will be able to access it every day after school. Without this space, our programs are much more difficult to deliver and participants have much less flexibility in when they can attend.

The money fundraised through this platform will fund the organization for an entire year - including getting the new programming space up and running. The space will be complete with electricity and water, and provide the capacity for a minimum of 15 hours of programming each week, local events, and expanding our programs into neighboring communities.

A little goes a long way…

$100 covers the on-site monthly administrative expenses such as internet and transportation.

$200 covers a monthly reinvestment of funds towards fundraising, advertising, and networking.

$500 covers monthly programming expenses including materials, rent, and utilities

$500 covers one monthly stipend for an employee on the ground (we are aiming to hire two)

$3000 covers the one time expenses we'll need to make to get our space up and running with the necessary materials for the programs.

Transparency is important, please do not hesitate to contact us about any questions you may have about how your money will be spent -
