Project Peru

Charity description

Project Peru logo
Project Peru, a small, lively, totally voluntary UK-based charity running a children's refuge in the shanty towns near Lima, offers food, clothes, education, shelter and fun to those in need in a country where much of the population still lives in extreme poverty.

What does Project Peru do in Peru?
The focal point of the Project in Peru is at Zapallal near Lima, where we have established a children’s refuge. We regularly provide food, shelter and support for children and families in need. We also distribute a variety of material goods sent from the UK, both in the refuge, to the families, the immediate community and in the interior of Peru.

What does Project Peru do in the UK?
We raise funds through a wide range of activities including sponsored events, craft sales, catering, educational workshops, and send financial support to Peru; we also send material assistance (including clothing, educational materials, toys, tools, toiletries etc.), for distribution to our refuge and elsewhere in Peru through the Project's network of contacts in Lima and elsewhere in the country. We raise awareness in the UK about Latin America in general, about Peru in particular, and especially about Project Peru
