The mission of Seeds of Hope is to support children living in extreme poverty in Huaraz,Peru and to provide vocational training for those without economic means, enabling them to break the cycle of poverty.
We provide a supportive environment in which the children obtain help and encouragement with their homework. They are also given emotional support from our volunteers, taught the importance of personal hygiene and provided with a nutritious meal at the end of each session.
Seeds helps to provide the children with school uniforms, study materials and school matriculation fees as required. In addition, we also help to pay for medical assistance as the need arises.
The children we help come from the poorest families in Huaraz, Peru. Ranging in age from six to eighteen years old, each one deserves an education and an opportunity to improve their circumstances.
We recognise that these children need to overcome disadvantage and many other barriers to succeed in education, so Seeds of Hope tries to ensure the children have everything they need to participate in their education through emotional and material support. The children are taught to take responsibility for their own education and to value the opportunity they have to learn. They are also given emotional support from our volunteers, taught the importance of personal hygiene and provided with a nutritious meal at the end of each session.
Volunteer with Us!
We always need volunteers to help at Seeds of Hope and welcome anyone with a positive outlook and enthusiasm. There are lots of opportunities you can participate in and volunteer with us, whether it is working directly with the children or behind the scenes.
We are always interested in hearing about your ideas for projects, also. Whether it's expanding our nutrition program, working to implement further sex education classes or you have ideas for fun exercise regimes, we want to hear from you! We currently need teachers, social workers, psychologists, project coordinators, language professionals, marketing and fundraising professionals. All are truly rewarding experiences.
