Childhood in Peru
An investigation by the German Red Cross shows that more than 20.000 children live and work in the streets of Lima. Even the smallest need to help so that their families can survive. As a consequence, school attendance is often neglected, and without education they have no chance to plan their lives successfully.
Here are some photos depicting the living conditions of youngsters, prior to their acceptance into the Project.
