Welcome To Seeds Of Hope!

  1. 1. Welcome to Seeds of Hope!<br />The Afternoon Kids with some of the volunteers<br />
  2. 2. Where is Seeds of Hope?<br />In Huaraz, Peru … a sleepy town of 100,000 people, nestled 3000 metres above sea level in the Peruvian Andes. <br />
  3. 3. A Quick Trip Around Huaraz…<br />The outdoor market which is an integral part of life in Huaraz.<br />A section of the main <br />street where some of <br />our kids work til 11pm <br />every night in order to <br />help their families.<br />The main square with the <br />gorgeous Andes Mountains in <br />the background.<br />
  4. 4. What is the role of Seeds of Hope?<br />Seeds of Hope is a non-profit charity organisation that works to help children living in extreme poverty. <br />It provides its children with education and support that they wouldn´t otherwise recieve. <br />
  5. 5. A Day in the Life of …<br />This is Edhil. He is 11 years old. He lives <br />with his family of seven in a one room <br />house made from mud brick. They have<br />no electricity or running water. He loves playing soccer and having a laugh!<br />In the mornings, Edhil comes to Seeds of Hope where we help him <br />with his homework and provide him with other educational and <br />emotional support. <br />In the afternoons, Edhil goes to one of the local schools. He is in the <br />4th Grade although he should be in the 6th Grade. <br />In the evenings, Edhil works on the streets selling candy and guarding cars with his older brothers. <br />This is the life of many of the kids at Seeds of Hope <br />
  6. 6. Where´s Home?<br />This is the home of one of our poorest<br />families. Can you believe that eight <br />people live here? It´s hard to imagine…<br />but unfortunately, for many of the <br />children living in Peru, this is their reality.<br />The poorer neighbourhoods are <br />situated by the river, which is heavily<br />polluted with rubbish and sewerage. <br />there is limited electricity and no <br />running water. Houses are made from <br />mud brick or metal sheeting, offering <br />little protection from the elements – it <br />often drops to below 10 degrees at night!<br />
