Mission

Our mission is to love as many children as possible, while making Jesus famous along the way. Approximately 35% of Peruvians live in poverty, and are unable to care for themselves or their children. This leaves thousands of kids starved for love, affection, and basic needs.

Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

We work in the slums of Peru with children, teens and young adults. They live without water and sewer and are very poor and hungry. Our organization provides daily hot meals, after school programs including teen development. We are working to address the children's needs with other non profit organizations that have seen our work and are willing to come along side of us. These communities live in shacks so we also build a 12x12 brick home each month for children from our center. The children and teens lack the basic everything. WE are working to address as many problems as we can thru daily feedings and raising them up to be leaders in their communities.

Community Centers

Our community centers are a vital way to meet the needs of children and young people as an after-school program. The youngest children flood into our community center after 2 o’clock to meet with teachers, take computer classes, and learn all about the love of Jesus. Later, the older kids and teens come join us to use the space as a time to relax and hang out. At this time we also facilitate a young adult ministry and worship service.

Through our engagement in the community, we often find the need take frequent trips to local orphanages, make home repairs, and help in so many other aspects of the community.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

To give these children and teens and young adults hope and a future. Right now we are providing for their physical needs. Such as shoes and clothing and meals but our long term goal is to use our center as a launching pad for other centers. We are hoping to build a tech center to teach the teens a trade or life skills that will help lift them out of poverty.

Right now we have single moms that are volunteering their time to provide meals each day to the children and elderly. We have volunteers and paid staff to help the children with their after school home work. At night our staff opens the centers so the teens can come and have a place to study and hang out with their friends. For the tech center we are raising money to build two new floors or a new building. Once this is finished we will use this as a model to build more.

Right now we have spent two years working with the kids. We are growing and providing services for over 200 children, teens and young adults each day. We are blessed to have a wonderful board of directors based out of Denver Colorado that help organize and raise money. We have the staff in place and we are raising up leaders at our centers to reach out to other communities.

We started out in an empty shell of a building and have turned the building into something extremely nice for the kids and teens. We have clean restrooms which this area doesn't have. We have a fully equipped kitchen. We have computer rooms, video game rooms, music classes and so much more. On the roof of the building we have built and extremely nice playground for the kids. WE are doing community outreach with the moms. We stated out with 25 kids and we are packed with over 200 each day that leave with full bellies and hope for tomorrow.

Our vision is to build a tech center at our location to teach the kids a trade in electricity, computer, bakery or mechanics. Once this is in place we will use this center as a launching pad to build more centers in an area of extreme poverty.
