Finalist

“Mi Patita Ideal”

The group “CAMBIEN”, from the Faculty of Architecture of the National University of the Center of Peru, related to the care and protection of animals, specifically pets, has done different activities like “Campaign of sterilization and castration for pets”, and later we implemented the project “ Mi Patita ideal” to help change people’s attitude, increasing sensitivity and raising awareness through art, related to care and protection of pets.

We were able to raise awareness and sensitize students and the community to the importance of animal care and treatment with the support of institutions and interested groups so that they take a change in attitude. The students participating self-financed their activity via management.

Top 3 learnings

1. We as volunteers become aware of the problem in order to act.
2. We participate actively not only elaborating the project, but like doers to be involved in the problem and to be part of the solution.
3. We integrate into the society through social projection to be leaders and managers.

What it means to win

“It is a meritorious achievement that “MI PATITA IDEAL” is considered a finalist; the students demonstrated their great social sensitivity to pets and their projection to the society. Winning the award would make us proud pride and be an example to follow in order to improve our society and environment.” 

Dr Delia Gamarra Gamarra , Vice-Chancellor of UNCP
