The “Comunidad de Niños Sagrada Familia” was founded in 1989 by Miguel Rodriguez and is located in one of Lima’s poorest districts, in Ventanilla. The community gives abandoned and neglected children exposed to drugs, violations, prostitution a caring and loving home. The kids receive not only food, but as well an overall education based on affection, responsibility, values and work. They are supported by a team of psychologist, social and care workers.
Global Volunteers supports Sagrada Familia by sending teams of short-term volunteers to serve the children in Ventanilla through community-directed and led service programs.
