Hand in Hand Trust

Hand in Hand Trust runs four nurseries for 250 children in some of the poorest communities in Peru. In order to survive many parents have no choice but to leave their children unattended while they work and countless young children, even babies, are left either on their own or in the care of siblings. Apart from the dangers of being ‘home alone’, these children miss out on emotional, physical and mental development at a crucial stage of their lives. By providing stimulation, exercise, nutritious meals and emotional stability Hand in Hand nurseries contribute to the social and economic development of whole communities.
