The Peru Children’s Trust has three main aims
- To support the education of orphans and poor children. Athough education is officially ‘free’ the government pays the teachers’ salaries only; everything else – desks, books, stationary, and uniforms – must be bought by parents. Families struggling with poverty cannot, therefore, afford to send their children to school.
- To improve the living standards of children and young people in impoverished families. With care and love we can improve living conditions such as sanitation, bedding, roofing, nourishment, medical care and earning prospects, with self-help advice and small business start-up schemes.
- To promote Christian teaching, family guidance and counselling. To enhance the life of the community by running Sunday school, children’s holiday weeks, pastoral visits, women’s welfare groups and Bible studies
