Sweet Child Peru
We have been working with high Andean children since 2015. Sweet Child Peru is a project that works to create and improve life oportunities for high Andean children in Peru.
In July 2020 we took over 1200 square meters of overgrown land attached to the Sillacancha primary school and set about transforming it into an interactive learning garden that would also provide healthy organic meals for the children.
In june 2022 following the success of our previous years we started working in the Huycho primary school.
In the gardens we have a stimulating learning environment where we can make the most of hands on learning experiences and combines gardening with math, science, history, geography, critical thinking, problem solving and other subjects.
Our outdoor class rooms provide a shady and peacefully spot to study with our fantastic teachers.
We have been providing many children with classes in Organic gardening, English, Computer literacy, music, arts, tutoring help with their assigned homework and fun emotional development classes where the children learn through play and group tasks.
Our entire project depends upon your generous donation , with gratitud to all our donors or as they say in the andes MUNAY.
We take abandoned pieces of land and transform them into abundant organic gardens.
We provide The best education to become successful adults, family members, community leaders and caring parents of the next generation.
We work as an extracurricular education club. We provide all children with a hot nutritious meal, fruit and 4 hours of extracurricular education weekly.
On a daily basis we aim to fill bellies, put smiles on faces and sow a few seeds of curiosity. As the weeks have gone on we have seen children become more confident and eager to learn. New concepts such as respect and responsibility as well as problem solving ideas are helping these children fulfil their potential.
Nutrition against Anemia
Malnutrition and Anemia are serious problems in the Peruvian Andes, in the garden we devote large areas to the production of iron rich crops, such as beans, broccoli and kale whilst supplementing their lunches with citrus fruits.
Education and life skills
We aim to create a generation of children who have had access to the education they need, are respectful of their environment and know how to work in harmony with nature
Supporting High Andean Comunities
Our outreach projects will allow us to engage the local and high Andean communities, build bridges and develop a sense of pride and responsibility about the land, their culture and their future.
We have created the first children´s library in the area, our library is a beautiful and comfortable space where we aim to cultivate the love for reading. The children have access to we have books in Quechua, Spanish and English.
