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 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.
