Monday March 5th, Paul Lammermeir and a one of his Peruvian students gave a presentation in St. Mary’s Chapel throughout the day. His talk encompassed his mission in Perú with his 3 homes that are modeled after Boys Hope/ Girls Hope.
Taken from the Paul Lammermeier Foundation website is the Mission Statement:
To solidify and expand the manifestation of Paul Lammermeier’s life work, which is consistent with the teachings of Jesus Christ and the Jesuit ideal of service to others, by providing homes in Lima, Peru for homeless children.
The foundation provides safe, value-centered, and loving homes for impoverished children. These children, who typically begin the program around the age of 13, are given food, clothing, education, tutoring, medical care, and extracurricular activities.
By creating an environment in which we nurture the minds and spirits of these Peruvian youth it is our hope to provide the educational background necessary for these children to break the cycle of poverty. This includes the needed support and guidance for these children to work towards university education.
