It takes 2 Years !. When we find a child, convince the mother to let us get him or her educated, take them into our little school, give them their first lessons; finally get them up to the level of education for their age, and matriculate them into a state school (paying for uniforms and all expenses): our work for that child is only just begun (2 years)

HIV / AIDS pandemic thrives in Latin America
Sherrill brings AIDS help to poor children
Sherrill Musty, the publisher of the book "WHAT'S A VIRUS ANYWAY
The UN has declared that the number infected with HIV/AIDS in Latin America is greater than that of Europe and the USA combined. If you live in one of these countries you would not know this - it is not reported in the media, talked about in the chambers of Government. They are in denial. But we know it is there, children and families in the communities we help are suffering: and there is little help available.
Street Kids For over three decades Latin America has endured the unenviable distinction of having more street children per capita than any place on earth. What is less known is that for every child who sleeps in the street there are 300 more in practically the same condition who live on the street by day but at night sleep under a plastic sheet or in a woven read or adobe hovel with their siblings. Both are classed as "Street Children", the distinction being 'IN' the street, as opposed to 'ON' the street [those 'IN' are more likely to be addicted to drugs]. When we first arrived in Org. we worked with both types of Street Children, but for the past three years we have concentrated our efforts and resources in helping the much larger but less known population of Street Children who live On the street; those abandoned in their own homes. During this time we have managed to open hub centres in 8 cities, with 24 satellite children's centres located in the poorest barrios: where we educate, feed, medicate and care for them Won't you join us!.
Bruce  opens to help the poor children if Chiclayo The Ministry of Education have invited us to install our little schools for very poor children within sellected primary and secondary schools. We have agreed to operate a pilot in one school, and if the relationship works: will consider others.
Street children need  help...... Street kids,
..........They come to us
..........as they are;
we make of them
..........what they let us
they crave love, need directionready for school......
