Peruvian Hearts Mission Still Going StrongPosted by Team Peru
A lot of people consider Peruvian Hearts the Collette Foundation’s “first project” and in many ways it was. After all, it was a fateful trip to Peru for Dan Sullivan and members of the Collette team that sparked the idea to do more to give back to the kids around the world, in the communities we visit. I personally am just delighted that the Collette Foundation discovered the foundation, Peruvian Hearts – because it really is a perfect fit and a great experience.
I’ve been the ambassador for Peru for a few years and it’s honestly been a highlight of my career. Being a part of Peruvian Hearts has been an amazing journey. I’ve gotten to see some of the sweet kids at this orphanage grow up. I’ve seen countless passengers from our trips happily interact with them, often finding ways to continue to help the kids, long after they’ve returned home.
So what’s new? On a recent trip to the orphanage, I got to see a new basketball court/soccer court that was erected which the kids love. There are a few boys there now too. The newly improved computer room looks great too!
The kids were very excited to see our group, and everyone was dancing.
I showed Sister Graciela the USBs that we brought this time for the kids and they were THRILLED!!
I can’t wait for my next trip back.
