About Sweet Child Peru
Louisa Callery and her team opened the doors of Sweet Child Peru after realizing that many children who went to schools in the Sacred Valley were living in abandoned homes during the week because their walk to and from their mountain communities was too far or too dangerous. For some, the one-way journey takes over three hours. Soon after hearing about these kids’ stories and learning the needs of the schools and communities, they signed the lease for the current house, bunk beds were installed, and they opened the house. From the initial shortlist of 70 kids, they were able to house 16. The house provides a safe space for the kids to eat nutritious food, have a warm bed to sleep in, and to share learning in the community. The house currently houses 17 children. The youngest is 6 years old, and the oldest is 16. There are currently 4 girls and 16 boys.
