About Andemos


Andemos (“walking together”) is the international volunteer program for Peace and Hope International that aims to stimulate exchange and mutual learning between people from different countries, cultures and socioeconomic backgrounds, as we serve, learn, and seek justice among marginalized communities in Peru, Bolivia, and Ecuador.

What is Unique about Andemos?

Andemos was founded in 2009 as an initiative of people of faith from countries in the southern and northern hemispheres who desire justice for the marginalized. An element that distinguishes Andemos from other programs is our practice of partnering with local organizations, such as Paz y Esperanza, that have a permanent presence in Peru, Ecuador, and Bolivia. As such, Andemos volunteers "walk together" with committed program staff and vulnerable populations through building relationships that produce mutual change.

Our Mission

Our mission is to mobilize people from countries around the world who desire to serve and build relationships with the most vulnerable in Latin America, as they are mutually transformed by the God of justice and compassion.

Our Vision

To stimulate mutual learning between people from different countries, cultures, and socio-economic backgrounds as we learn, serve and seek justice among marginalized communities in Latin America.

To enable young justice-seekers to learn from and practice alongside the local teams of Paz y Esperanza in the field of human and environmental rights.

To strengthen a generation of servant-leaders, who have a clear vision of holistic mission and are committed to transforming the society in which they live.

Paz y Esperanza

Paz y Esperanza (Peace and Hope) is a pioneering international human rights organization whose mission is to promote justice for people and communities who suffer injustice and poverty. Paz y Esperanza is comprised of independent organizations in Peru, Ecuador, Bolivia, the United States, and the United Kingdom that share a common mission and mutually cooperate with and support each other. Peace and Hope International is the international headquarters for Paz y Esperanza with offices in Minneapolis, USA and Lima, Peru. For more information, visit Paz y Esperanza or Peace and Hope International, or go directly to Places!
