Recently, we had the privilege of having our group from Durham University visit. They had a great trip and did a fantastic job with the kids. Some students helped with homework, and in addition, our teachers at Piqaflor House helped our Peruvian students with core subjects, and then in English, learning basic classroom words in their last lesson.
The greenhouse was sprouting, and the cooks were busy working hard to feed the kids a nutritious lunch of quinoa, avocado, and tomato, so they would get the necessary nutrients to keep growing and learning. Then, the place was a flurry of activity as the Durham students helped make kites, and put on traditional costumes to dance with the children. Last, there were some tearful goodbyes as bonds had been made and it was now time to return home.
In addition to the UK group’s physical work, they each raised a large amount of money, personally, in order to fund the lunches, the staff, and the important work Piqaflor House does every day. With this amount, we can continue to change the trajectory of these Peruvian childrens’ lives, providing education, and a safe place to grow into their bright futures. It was truly an honor to see many people give out of their own generosity, and the students raise money to help those less fortunate. We continue to be humbled by the altruism of others and the large hearts with which they are willing to help others.
If you have any questions about what our programs or the work we do, please don't hesitate to ask.
