The Robin Hood Project is a United Kingdom-based charitable organisation, dedicated to improving the education of children in the Peruvian town of Máncora.


Founded in 2007, Robin Hood was the brainchild of IT Programme Manager, Magda Metwally. Magda Metwally & Para el Mundo (PaM) become partners and kicked off Robin Hood Project in Mancora. Our After School and Literacy Programme grew rapidly in 2 years.[3]

The project enrolls an average of 50 children between the ages of 9-12. Through PaM, Robin Hood, benefited from numerous volunteers, offering skill exchange and experiences. In 2009 Magda Metwally, became fully responsible for the project. 50% of the funding is covered personally by Magda Metwally. The project continues to grow with a kick-off of Robin hood Spanish School. The Spanish School’s main priority is to fund the charity.[2]
