Co-Founder of For The Need Foundation
Meet Viviana Spaccarelli. Viviana was born and grew up in Lima, Peru until she was 17 years old, where she saw a lot of poverty around; like children selling candy, washing car windows, or begging for money to survive in the streets. It was in her heart ever since she was a teenager to help children in need. Viviana received her bachelor’s degree in Child Development, and she received her Bilingual teaching credential for elementary school children after that. She has always loved children. In 2000, Viviana along with her husband Myan hosted a Holiday party for children with AIDS. Every year, they have had a Holiday Party for children in need and it has always been her favorite day of the year. In 2004, Viviana and Myan founded For the Need Foundation. Viviana is the Events Coordinator and organizer of these events. Viviana and Myan have three children who have always participated with the For the Need Foundation events since they were born. Viviana looks forward to continuing helping and making a difference for more children in need through the Bow and Arrow Program.
