Casa de Paz
Lima – Peru
Lima, Peru. In one of the poorest areas in South America, we have created a place of safety. Casa de Paz (Home of Peace) is a building with running water, computers and healthy meals that currently serves 30 children with room for more. These children have access to showers, tutors in English and computers, warm meals, and most importantly a community that believes in them.
Casa De Paz in not a place for simple hand-outs without connection; it’s a training ground for mighty, future leaders. We believe each child has the ability of being the solution to the widespread issues within the place they call home. Each child is a champion that can, if given the personal investment of hope, grace, and love, rise above their circumstances and live a full and joy-filled life.
Financial and organizational support to host nearly 40 children in the poorest area of Lima, Peru. It breaks our hearts to see how different the standard of life is in certain corners of the earth. This is one of them. But these kids are full of joy and hope. Food, clean water, education and emotional support is provided in an environment of grace and empowerment.
Help us serve the kids at Casa de Paz.

COVID-19 Update – 2021
In March 2020, Peru went into full lock down due to the spread of COVID-19. Peru was unfortunately described as the COVID hotspot at one point as the cases continued to rise and surpassed other countries. Many have lost jobs. 47% of the populations has declared they no longer have any more food in the house with no money. The school year was cancelled, and Casa de Paz was also forced to close the official program.
To continue to support the community, the team has opened a food bank which has enabled to provide food for Casa de Paz families – 40 families with 2-3 weeks worth of food at a time. Kids have been receiving tutor by the team via WhatsApp and pre-maid videos. Continuing to encourage and challenge them in this difficult time.
Thank you so much for your continuous support. Couldn’t have done this without you.
