The structure of the PROJECT CANETE 2010 - WORKCAMP in PERU came from an initiative of the department of Digestive Illnesses of the Bio-Med Campus and of the University Residence Porta Nevia of the Rui Foundation, as a response to the concrete needs (both formation and socio-medical assistance) of the Condoray Centre in the Canete Valley in Peru.
Following the trend of the previous Workcamps (2006, 2008 e 2009), this yearthe Peru Workcamp is an opportunity of personal and professional growth for univeristy students and young professionals. The Workcamp wants to give a real contribution to the activities of the Women Formation Centre in Condoray, through activities in the villages.
