You can also organize your own mission or service trip for your church, business, family or social group to work with our projects in Peru. Our staff will work closely with your group to take care of all the details involved in planning your trip and help you create a trip that uses the gifts of the group to meet the needs of our projects and surrounding community. We strive to incorporate a variety of ministry opportunities into the trip, including working with Hogar Luz de Vida youth transitional home, Hilos y Semillas, work-projects and community development projects. Contact us at for more information.



We are looking for volunteers to spread awareness about Corazón de Esperanza by speaking to small groups, churches, and community social groups about our ministry. We will provide you with a fact sheet, a PowerPoint template, and informative materials.

Fundraisers are another great way to help us raise important funds for our programs as well as increase awareness about the needs of the youth, women and children. Some examples of successful fundraisers that Corazón de Esperanza supporters have held in the past include:

• Photography exhibit (photography can be mailed to the event organizer)

• Holding a bake sale or yard sale.

• Organizing a 5k run event.

• Asking friends and family to make donations to Corazon de Esperanza in lieu of birthday or Christmas gifts.

• Hosting a house party to sell Peruvian jewelry and knitted items from the Hilos y Semillas program (supplies can be sent to the event organizer)

• Organize a collection in your area for one of our projects. Our ministry is always in need of school supplies, housewares, Spanish resources and office supplies.
