Education for All.
is a Human Right
Children deserve an education. We believe that education and literacy are the keys to unlocking the potential of displaced children, and communities. We want to change everything and we need your help. Help us support our first community in Peru - the marginalized Quechua children with education and basic hygiene needs. A one time $20 donation will support up to 3 children with a notebook, pens, pencils, toothbrush, toothpaste and bar of soap.
Education & Literacy for all children.
Working with our counterparts on the ground in Peru, our goal is to continually support one community at a time. We are supporting the Quechua children of Peru - where 90% of all funds donated will be spent supporting the basic and educational needs of children in Peru.
Poverty in 2021 should not exist and yet it does. There are many roots to underlying cause of poverty, however education and literacy are still one of the strongest factors in determining poverty. Education is the great equalizer - we know that most people living in poverty may keep their children out of school. Children living in poverty will not have access to technology or reading materials to help them escape their own circumstance. Learning to read, becoming educated, is the cornerstone of ending the cycle of poverty. Our goal is to ensure that displaced communities and children have the essentials to learn: teachers, notebooks, pens and pencils, as well as basic hygiene needs such as soap, toothpaste and toothbrushes. Ultimately our goal is to keep growing to provide learning opportunities for these children, to build self sufficiency in their lives and the lives of their communities. Education, we know, reduces income inequality, improves economic growth, and provides children the opportunity of becoming a thriving member of their community. Our main areas are serving Indigenous Communities both in Peru.
Education is the passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today.

Education is the most important right of every human being. Educating the mind can help develop a sense of self, confidence and may be one of the only ways to change the cycle of poverty around the world. Living Heart believes that it is through the development of children and children's education that change can happen. Our primary focus is to ensure that children have equitable access to learning, and learning materials that they need, to better their future.
Nutrition (proper nutrition) is essential for learning. A portion of every donation will continue to support the nutritional needs of the Quechua Communities in which we serve. To ensure that children do not go hungry, that they have the proper foods in their system so that they can learn properly. Education begins with proper nutrition, which is why we have made it one of our mandates to ensure that we support our counterparts in Peru with assistance in nutrition for the children.
Basic healthcare needs is another key factor of where our donated funds are spent. Things such as soap, toothbrushes, toothpaste are not readily available to the children in the communities we serve. As such we continue to work with our counterparts in Peru, to spend a portion of all donated funds on acquiring and shipping out basic products such as soap, toothpaste and toothbrushes, individually wrapped for the children.
Lets keep this simple. We have 3 primary goals to achieve. To provide equitable access to technology, to ensure children have access to the tools they need to learn, and to develop access to books and lending libraries for children in need.
Provide tools for the continuation of educational pursuits for the Children of Peru.
Ensure that children have the tools and resources they need to learn.
Provide essentials for proper hygiene and nutrition to the children we support.
