We are a project that works to alleviate the destitution of children in the Peruvian Andes
Changes for New Hope was created in 2009 in the Ancash region of Peru. It serves children living in destitution and severe impoverishment. We provide a safe place to gather and learn about value based living, art projects, self esteem building, and we address the anemia issues with vitamins and anti-parasite medicines. We also provide material support by way of donated school materials, clothing and shoes, recreational supplies and personal hygiene materials. We have had 6 art exhibitions (four in national museums) published our first book "A Gringo in Peru-A Story of Compassion in Action" and also we publish a monthly magazine, The Changes for New Hope Humanitarian Awards Magazine. We also present a humanitarian award to ten selfless individuals around the world for their service to the disadvantaged.
Changes for New Hope needs dedicated and vision focused individuals who can hep advance our project into new communities, write articles for the international community, work with children ages 4-14, also work with indigenous women to encourage self esteem and dignity building. Artists, writers, teachers, outside the box visionaries. Over 50 years old applicants are strongly urged to apply.
We can meet you at the bus station upon arrival. We will arrange your stay at a hostal or other living arrangement. Based on our small size and resources we can not pay for your accommodations, meals or transportation.
A one time $400 volunteer donation is requested. Aside from airfare and ground transportation, most expenses to live here should not cost more than $20 a day.
Changes for New Hope needs active fundraising and reach-out volunteers. Speakers to social and community organizations to share our work here and raise awareness and funds. Our Humanitarian Award program needs corporate funding and sponsorship. Virtual volunteers would be extremely helpful to this end and at the same time would be helping several thousand disadvantaged children.
