On the outskirts of Cusco, Peru is a very special orphanage, House of Stars Orphanage.
This incredible facility gives hope and love to some of the most challenged children. Because of cultural mindsets and poverty, many of these children are abandoned and left to fend for themselves. House of Stars Orphanage has been rescuing these children and teaching them life skills.
The children’s problems are quite varied, from those that are hearing disabled to those that are incapacitated mentally. Most of these children go to a special needs school in Cusco and are learning life skills that they will need to survive in the world.
We are in need of donations to help these children with food and education.
If you are interested in volunteering please give us a call. We charge no over head but we do expect the volunteer to help the orphanage out financially with food or wherever they can see the need.
Volunteering would include: Taking the kids to school, assisting in the classroom, hugging children, wiping faces, bathing kids, helping to feed, holding them during tantrums and just loving them.
We would also need you to study your spanish before going. Communication is very important part of a positive experience.
Because we charge no overhead like other “work in an orphanage” groups, we would hope that you would fund raise to find money to purchase the orphanage something that they need. Whether it is repairing a leaking roof, fixing a toilet, purchasing a new computer or paying for school books and fees for a month. This way you KNOW exactly where your money is going.
