Human Actions ONG
Find out how we’re making a difference with our community initiatives and projects
Human Actions has been created out of a desire to foster healing; for individuals, families, and society at large. The organisation has been born out of our families desire to create a formula to help heal, drawn form the knowledge gained from ancestral and scientific teachers. Over the years our family has been through a number of ups and downs together. It is through these strong shared experiences that we were presented opportunities for growth and Human Actions is a synthesis of what we learned along the way. Aimed at people of all faiths and religions; scientists and doctors; atheists and agnostics; governmental and non-governmental organisations.
Modern day neuroscience has confirmed that engaging in kind acts improves ones hormonal, psychological, emotional, and physiological well being. In many cases it has been observed to prolong duration of life, generating vital force through which mental and physical healing is obtained.
“The person who undertakes acts of kindness with SINCERITY receive 100% of the benefits to ones health and well being. -People who do not undertake these acts with sincerity receive only a tiny portion”
Human Actions is a non-profit organisation whose mission it is to communicate a way of life based on providing sustainable social assistance, comprehensive healing, and an education based in humanism.We focus our actions on the less favored and vulnerable people and communities in Peru having as a base of support as Etnikas centre of integrative medicine.
The reality, that we are deeply connected with the universe and mother nature, and this is used as our guiding force. We consider it a mistake to think our physical existence is the sum total of reality, neglecting the spiritual realm and considering it imaginary. We believe that in entering into connection with the spirit, one enters into a connection with love. As the Spirit is Love.

PROJECTS IN COMMUNITIES
In this community there are wise elders who have preserved ancestral knowledge and who are still practicing. But they lack a link so that they can transmit this knowledge to the next generation.
The Human Actions team is helping the wise elders to organise workshops in the community school targeted at children and adolescents giving them the opportunity to learn and practice this important cultural knowledge. The workshops are focused on textiles, medicinal plants, permaculture, and gastronomy.
The Human Actions team are also providing the community with a counselling service aimed at sexual education, prevention of human trafficking, and psychotherapy sessions.
Social responsibility is something we consider very important here at Etnika’s. Our programs extend help into the communities of Cusco that have few resources. Communities such as Umachurco, in the province of San Salvador, have 150 children of all ages. Etnika’s provides the schools in Umachurco with pens, books and other supplies and disease screening campaigns. We also offer psychological counselling campaigns to the parents and children.
