This paper presents an investigation about the innovative e-learning programs applied in the Peruvian education system. This form of access to education is without a doubt an important vehicle for poverty reduction and tremendous efforts have been made to broaden such access in developing countries. The potential of e-technology for developing countries, as well as for the rest of the world, is breathtaking. The idea of enabling people, no matter where they are, to develop their skills and competencies and connect to global communities to share and expand knowledge is deeply moving. E-learning also has the potential to help reduce poverty by empowering the socially disadvantaged and less privileged in society including: lower - income groups, the handicapped, sick and disabled, members of ethnic minority groups and women affected by cultural and religious prejudice. This paper outlines how private and public entities developed e-learning programs within the Peruvian education system. It presents a survey of private and public schools to know the degree of integration that have e-learning in their educational programs. It also presents two case studies: The Huascaran Program and Education Classrooms in Hospitals Program.
