On December 4th, 2009, our volunteers took place in a ceremony at the mayor’soffice of the Santa Anita district of Lima where we presented educational books and DVDs to 11 of the poorest schools in the district. Each school received 29 DVDs, six beautifully illustrated hard cover books containing CD with narration, 10 CDs with songs and dramas, 2 sets of 35 posters portraying good manners and spiritual values, and last but not least, a motivational quote book for the principal’s desk.

Thanks to sponsorship from Activated ministries we were able to distribute around 1,200 sets of coloring books, 1,200 sets of memory games and 1,200 Christmas Activated magazines to some of the poorest children in Peru. This distribution took place during Christmas 2009 at celebrations in 10 different locations including schools, orphanages, community centers, children’s hospital wards, including the cancer and burnsections, and poor neighborhoods.

Children's education given a much needed boost in Lima, Peru

José Frias

The city of Lima, Peru, though poor, is rich in care and concern for its city and its people.

A beautiful illustration of this came to us through the government organization of INABF which currently runs 33 orphanages with over 3000 children as well as 35 schools in some of the poorest parts of the country.

Last year during our first contact with them, they had excitedly purchased an entire set of the Treasure Attic DVD’s, which is a wonderful children’s educational video series.

Free DVD’s to 34 Schools in Peru

As part of our Christian Value educational support program here in Peru, we regularly make missionary trips to cities in the interior of the country to publicize the Cherub Wings and Treasure Attic DVDs. A year ago, our volunteer team went to Arequipa, the second largest city in Peru. During this trip we met a nun, Mother Zaleta, who is the president of an association of 34 schools located in the outskirts of the city. She warmly welcomed us and invited us to join her in a meeting she was to hold that very afternoon with the school’s principals.

This Christmas season, volunteers from The Family International in Luaodong performed Christmas programs for the eighth consecutive year in the Yilan and Hualien counties of Taiwan.

The world-wide economic crisis made this year somewhat different from previous years as so many people were suffering financially. Thanks to the sponsored materials we received from Activated Ministries we were able to give Christmas presents to those who would not have other wise received anything for Christmas.

“What beautiful books! I’ve never seen anything so pretty!” exclaimed Vicky, a student at Laroo Junior School in Gulu, Northern Uganda. Vicky is 12 and lives alone with her younger sister, with no relatives or parents to help them. Since having the opportunity to join the school, she has blossomed into the most earnest of students, so extremely grateful to have this chance to study and learn life-skills.
