We work with four schools in Peru – two for students with disabilities from ages three to 20 and two early intervention programs for infants and toddlers. We’ve put in a playground, bought wheelchairs for children who can’t walk, provided augmentative communication for children who can’t talk. We currently pay for medication for two little girls with severe seizure disorders and are making plans to assist a young woman who will turn 20 this year and no longer qualify for educational services. We make donations to a local food pantry and recently built a wall which turned one larger classroom into two smaller classrooms to accommodate growth in the program. We’ve bought materials, including a microwave and blender, to enable one of the programs to provide daily snacks to their students. We’ve taken leg braces, donated by a local school for students with disabilities, for children with orthopedic problems, and then bought the children new shoes to fit over their braces.
We’re a small 501(c)3 organization. We make annual trips to Peru and work closely with the directors of the programs to determine their priorities. We’re committed to using 100% of donations to help the children, their families, their teachers, and their communities and personally reimburse any fees deducted from contributions.
Have a wonderful day. Muchas gracias, amigos!
