Food for Andes Mountains Students

Project Leader:

Sister Sister M. Ancilla Maloney

The district of Layo where the Sacred Heart Alternative High School is located is 12,000 feet high in the Andes mountains. There are no high schools in the region for the students to attend. Their families are poor farmers or raise animals. They cannot afford to send food with their children to the school except for some potatoes. They leave home at 4:00 AM walk 4 or 5 hours from their homes to Layo each Thursday and stay overnight with families in town. They go to class Friday and then walk home again. Please help provide nutrition for these ambitious students.

Dear Samuel, Here in Peru, we eat a lot of potatoes -but I can´t imagine eating ONLY potatoes every day-and that without butter!!!!or anything else on them!!! These young people know that this project with Missio is happening. They have high hopes for better, more nutritious food to eat.God bless you! Sister Anciila
