My daughter and I have been associated with Nilton and Eli since we volunteered with a related charity in Huancayo in 2006. Eli accompanied us on our travel to orphanages and assisted us with every concern while working with families in the Andes. When my daughter and I returned to the US, we formed a charity of our own to raise funds for specific needs of children Peru Luz brought to our attention, and for the construction and running of their rural schools. Having worked in an orphanage school in Huancayo, we understood the need for meals, furniture, school supplies, facilities, and utilities for the support of rural families.
This is a family of committed nationals striving at the ground level to improve the health, safety, and education of the most needy in their area. Through their efforts, basic nutritional, hygienic, and emotional support are continuing to be provided through Peru Luz de Esperanza.
Nilton and Eli are easy to work with. We have operated jointly with them on several projects over the years and have absolute faith and trust in Eli and Nilton. They have been our ¨boots on the ground¨ since our return to America. They have not received any pay or benefit from us. Just the opposite, they have given of their own resourced in goods and time to carry out our projects in Peru. Their selfless devotion is unwavering, and we consider them our good friends.
