January through March (summer holiday down here) we prepare 5 and 6 year old children - those who are so poor, abandoned or abused they would not be able to go to school if we don' find and help them..We give each centre a target of how many children we expect them to get into school. For March 2006 the target will be 350 - 400 children.

New Bruce Peru Centre, Miraflores, Lima, Peru In August we succeeded in enrolling all 27 children of our Las Palmeras satellite centre into the local state school. This was a unique accomplishment in view of the facts: it was mid term, we only had a few months to prepare them, all entered into grades near to where they would have been had they been regularly attending school all these years. We congratulate the teachers and Volunteers who have workd so hard at Bruce Peru Palmeras !

The suffering of our children does not make the evening news Our children were not in the Tsunami (though one of our volunteers survived it).This is a parabole - In the same way the Tsunami captured the news headlines and the whole world got involved, yet the same number of lives are lose each week to starvation: which goes unreported: so it is with our chidren. The whole world knows about "street children", most people have seen them - if only on TV - and there are NGO's set up to help (though of course they need lots more than this). The category of children we serve far outnumbers those who live in the street, and they are almost as badly off. So why does the world not know about them? Because they sleep under plastic or in a woven mat shelter in utter poverty with uncaring or abusive parents - they must find their own food, get their own clothes; they don't go to school: they are abandoned in their own homes. That's why the world does not know about them. But we know they are there, that they suffer, and we have come to find them, to help.
Won't you join us!.
