In Partnership With: New Hope Children’s Home
Proposed Project Dates
7th to 21st July 2018
About The Mission
New Hope Children’s Home is a home for orphaned, abandoned and at-risk children, located in the village of Pachcutec near Arequipa, Peru. Children who have been found on the streets, orphaned, or determined to be at-risk in their own family setting are placed at New Hope through the judicial system of Arequipa. They typically have 40 - 50 children living at New Hope, often ranging from ages 3 to 18.
Children live in small groups of 8 to 10 kids with their house parents to help simulate a family living situation. Each group has their own apartment where they do all their normal life activities - eat meals together, do homework, spend time together, watch movies, etc. There are large communal spaces for the kids to play outside (usually soccer or volleyball!) There is also a small church and it is hoped that this can be developed with a full time Pastor to evangelise into the community.
About The Work
