Tell me a bit about Peru?

Peru is bordered by Ecuador, Colombia, Brazil, Bolivia, and Chile. It is a beautiful country famous for Machu Pichu, Paddington Bear, Pisco, and potatoes (did you know Peru has 3000+ different types of potatoes?). But the areas Many Hopes work on are less well reported. Rates of sexual abuse and violence towards women in the areas we work are very high: every day four girls between 11 and 14 years old become pregnant, often as a result of abuse. The government has not yet prioritized the tacking of sexual violence. But we have.

What you can help us do in Peru:

Nurture & Educate




Maria Resurección

Local leadership is one of our core principles because we believe that real and lasting change must come from within. Maria is a psychologist and has spent her entire career treating and advocating for girls who have survived sexual abuse. She is passionate about the power of raising survivors to prevent the abuse of others.

We are going to help her do that.

Maria in her own words:

“Education of women and girls will change the minds of abusers because, right now, abusers don’t know anything else. Providing education will move culture away from violence and poverty. It will be a chain reaction. They will impact a small number who will teach that to the next and the next and they will grow up with that new mindset.”



Monica’s life is an example of how your support keeps giving to girl after girl. Monica and her three siblings came into our care after being rescued from an abusive situation. The first steps in Monica’s healing were therapy and medical care before she started school and began to create a life plan with our staff counselor. She won a scholarship and chose to study technical nursing because she wanted to use her education to help people. Today she is a nurse.  Monica regularly comes back to visit us and encourages and inspires the young girls who are still where she once was. She says she is proud of the care she received and wants to do what she can to support the home that helped her. Monica is able to care for patients and empower other girls because you invested in her. Thank you.



For $60 per month, you can provide food, housing, and education for one girl in Peru.

This transformative care puts them on the path from injustice to influence. Click below to give now.


We rescue boys and girls from injustice and raise them to be men and women of influence through a 6-stage child development framework.


Girls who have suffered sexual abuse are referred to us by trusted contacts in government or the courts. We get a call at breakfast and by lunchtime a new girl can be in our care. Often the girls assume they have done something wrong so our first task is to help them understand they are here to heal and that it’s going to be ok.

Each girl receives immediate medical care and begins a counseling program. Our rescue homes have happy decorations and a beautiful garden so every part of her new environment promotes healing. Her first 15 days are adjustment, the next 15 she starts chores and school. Our team helps her understand that she is loved, her pain will heal, and her life will get better from here. Additionally, every 6 months she is assessed by a nutritionist.

Each girl attends either a local state or private school. For girls who already have babies (the result of sexual abuse) or are too old for elementary school, we provide schooling at home and an external program on weekends to help them catch up to their grade level.

Each girl works with a psychologist to create a personal life plan that maps out life goals with milestones along the way. She meets with former residents who are now young women out working and studying so every girl sees what is possible for them and has something tangible to chase.

Girls learn trades that make them confident and employable. They participate in civics workshops so they learn about the law, their rights, how to identify abuse, and what to do when they see it.

We have just piloted our “Opening Roads” program to support girls in their late teens into internships and higher education. The Many Hopes global community donates their influence to open doors to capital, employment, and further study.


The family is a global community of givers who subscribe to provide rescue, housing and education for a child every month of the year. Joining the Family is the highest impact way to support us.
Start your monthly subscription and help rescue and raise more children by being a member of the community we can count on.






We’re able to accept donations in the form of stock, government (including municipal) debt and corporate debt. This can be arranged from most brokerage accounts.
