Celebrating our 100th house in Las Laderas

A celebration by many of those involved...Result: probably 600 local people re-housed!

In August 2017 the 100th house was completed in Las Laderas [101 actually] funded and built in partnership with Amoria Bond, a Manchester-based company. A team of Amoria Bond staff members plus two of our older boys completed this task. The Amoria Bond team stayed at the Project Peru refuge for a week while doing this. Since 2011 we have enjoyed this partnership with the Amoria Bond Charitable Trust which has  funded all of these small wooden houses, and on three occasions their teams have done some of the building work. In all cases the the building has been supervised and completed by local workers. Project Peru has facilitated the whole 'project.' Here are some of the comments from the volunteer team about their experience there;

'Grounding'; 'Real and rewarding'; 'Inspiring'; 'Deeply fulfilling'; 'Once in a lifetime'; 'A whole new sense of ....perspective'; 'Life changing'.

Las Laderas is an area from which many of our children and some staff come, and many of our volunteers will have visited the area.

Spring is in the air

Spring is in the air in the Southern hemisphere: the sun is coming out again, as well as new crops in our kitchen garden; and our new 'duck project' is working well too!
