Where We Go:
Each day we travel from Lima to La Comunidad de Los Ninos - Sagrada Familia in La Ventanilla. This is a community of over 800 children who are unable to live with their birth families.
What We Do:
Our goal is to have a team of 90 to 100 so we can establish relationships with the children by working with them in small groups. We present Bible stories, play games, sing and create crafts each of the five days we are with the children.

Peru Orphanage Trip

Typically flights are booked on United Airlines through a group department contract. Other arrangements can be made. If you have airline miles or points you may make your own arrangements using your miles or points.
Travel to the orphanage is by chartered buses. The ride is about 1 ½ hours each way.
Hotel Accommodations :
The hotel is "Hotel Senorial" located in a district of Lima called Mira Flores. This district is one of the nicer and safer areas.
The hotel provides a breakfast buffet.
You need to bring snacks for lunch from the US. We do not eat the food at the orphanage.
Three evening meals are provided in the trip cost – we will stay in those three evenings and bring food into the hotel. The rest of the evening we will go out to restaurants and each person will pay for their meal.
