Issues we deal with
We work in the suburbs of Lima addressing the lack of educational opportunities and care taking facilities for children of poor families. Domestic violence, drug abuse and bad nutrition are further issues we deal with.
In 2021, a total of 257 children were taken care of in our kindergarten for children age 3-6 and our day care facility for children age 1-2. We do this in close cooperation with the Peruvian Ministry of Education.
Our psychologists work with the children, their families as well as in a neighboring secondary school. Requests for this support increase continuously.
Nutrition & Effective management
We support a group of women that initiated a local kitchen to provide food for the poorest. After giving them initial funding, the women get help and training to manage the kitchen on their own.
