About Us

Ankay was created in mid-2008 by a group of young Peruvian professionals who themselves benefited from scholarships both in Peru and abroad. Ankay is a Qechua word meaning “to fly.” Since its founding, Ankay has benefitted from the collaboration of two teams, one in Lima, Peru and the other in Washington DC, USA.MAS CHAPTERS.

Both teams work together in order to provide young talent from disadvantaged backgrounds the same educational opportunities to which they had access. In this way, a new generation of Peruvians will be able to fly regardless of financial difficulties and thus achieve their greatest aspirations.
