EVENT DATE: Feb 05, 2014
Voices4Peru believes that every child has basic rights. Our program provides a safe haven for children in Ventanilla, Peru where they can get food, water, medical care, and education in an environment safe from the violence and dangers of drugs, bullying, and violence of area gangs.
As a partner of Voices4Peru, you will become a partner with a child in Ventanilla who is benefitting from this program. Your monetary support will allow these children to fulfill the potential of all children. We want you to connect to a child in Ventanilla so you can become a part of her/his life by sharing pictures, emails, and progress reports of how the child is doing in school and everyday life. These children need to see that there is hope in the world and people care enough to be a part of their lives. Voices4Peru is also prepared to host you for a visit if you wish to come visit the child you are sponsoring and the rest of the school.
Voices4Peru will send monthly updates of the progress we are making in the community and show you exactly how you are benefiting the children and adolescents of our school. We are on the cutting edge of protecting these kids from gangs, homelessness, drugs, and unhealthy sexual relationships through education, social services, and the vigilance of our staff.
Voices4Peru provides a safe haven for children in Ventanilla, Peru where they can get food, water, medical care, and education. These are things that are not readily available to everyone. Every child should have these basic needs met and people can help V4P provide this through financial support or, if one is in medical field, by signing up to visit V4P with an iHelpGlobally medical mission.
Voices 4 Peru has recently started a school with 30 pre-K students. Our hope is to provide these 30 children with the knowledge required to raise themselves from the poverty of their current life in Ventanilla. This in turn will help raise the entire community by providing the education that creates a better workforce, which in turn will help turn the fortunes of the city.
Social and Recreational Activities
Voices4Peru understands that a child's life should not be lived simply trying to keep from being homeless or hungry. A child's life needs healthy social, recreational, and athletic outlets. In addition to providing basic needs, Voices 4 Peru runs a “safe” house where children, adolescents, and their families can gather without fear of the area gangs. This safe haven is where we engage in creative projects, theater, music, and organize the athletic teams. It is a place for children to be children instead of worrying about the poverty and dangers of their everyday lives.
