We are a club established in August of 2010, and are made up of students from Carmel High School in Carmel, CA, and we are dedicated in raising funds to support the poverty-stricken families of Peru. At this moment, The Peru Project is teaming up with The Becky Fund organization to help raise money to build greenhouses in Peru. The Becky Fund is made up of graduate students from the Monterey Institute of International Studies, and they have already supplied hundreds of Peruvian citizens with the basic necessities that they lack (i.e. school supplies, toothbrushes, blankets, pillows, etc.).
What is so great about building these greenhouses?
This can easily be explained by the extremely high-altitude environment that Peru is located in. For this reason, Peruvians are restricted to growing only roots such as potatoes and certain grains. As a result, numerous citizens suffer from malnourishment. With providing these greenhouses and the basic agricultural knowledge that they require, these poor families can lead better, healthier lives.
What exactly is our club's goal?
The Peru Project is dedicated in supporting the Peruvian citizens crippled by poverty, and its members are working hard to raise money to help construct greenhouses in Peruvian communities. The club has also planned to take a service trip down to Peru over the summer in order to build these greenhouses with The Becky Fund organization. Our club members are working diligently to raise funds and meet our goals.
