hold 4 fiestas to raise funds
for buying their children's school uniforms. Our volunteers
pitched in with the raw materials..Thank
you to the President of Rotary Club International of Huaraz, whose members help
sponsor some of the poorest children who attend the Bruce Peru Children's Centre
in Huaraz. Bruce and Ana Tere (founder and President of Bruce Peru), visited Huaraz
in late January, in part to thank the Rotary for their support for our programme
and our neediest children.
Hauraz operates its first satellite children's centre - 'Shancayan'. Since
Huaraz is by far our smallest city,
we have thought it enough to bring the children to our centre - but our team have
located a very poor community too far for this; and so are opening a satellite.
Bravo BP Huaraz!|
Sharon vies with Garry (both excellent at what they do) to see who will become
longest serving director of Bruce Peru Huaraz. Both keep returning: kids and volunteers
alike adore them.
Very poor children being
prepared to enter school for the first time.We have given
each centre a target of how many children we hope to prepare and register for
school by this December. Trujillo is on target. Huaraz is optemistic.Waiting for
word from Cajamarca and Malabrigo. Total: 185 children
Our campaign: "DON'T FEEL
SORRY FOR STREET CHILDREN!" is beginning to pick up momentum in centres where
lots of international tourists are encountering Peru's child laborers
on a daily basis.The object of the campaign is to recruit volunteers from the
tourist population who visit Peru each year,
have considered our Children's Centre in Hauraz to be one of our two best run
centres in Peru. This
is due to the three
months Chris and Elizabeth Saunders spent directing it. They have moved on.. |
| This is how we help the very poorest children of Huaraz to
become better nourished, clothed, medicated and most importantly: educated.
Huaraz is the mountain sport capital of Peru.
