Mission Statement of one of our Affiliates (April 2004):
International Volunteers bringing solutions for Street Kids, abandoned children and mothers in Latin America

Our mission is to improve the quality of life for as many street children as we can, also to help abandoned and single mothers through our program for international volunteers, working in Latin America. In order to turn street kids and child laborers into students, we are prepared to give them food, clothing, medical, psychological and social assistance. We also help with basic education and work skills training - including reading, writing, maths, English and computer basics.

Kids have the right to be fed, clothed, sheltered and educated by their parents. When parents are unable or refuse to do this: then society must intervene. Bruce Peru exists to feed, clothe, shelter and educate street kids who have been let down by their parents and by society.

We were formed as a registered Non Governmental Organization (NGO) in the spring of 2001, as the latest volunteer program of the private 27 year old NGO, Agenda SOS International, Inc. ("Beloved Child"). Our work since 2001 has consisted of providing some form of assistance to over 5,000 street kids and 2,000 poor mothers in the north of Peru. In the beach town of Delicias we have acquired a large ocean-front property, on which we are constructing a shelter for abandoned pregnant adolescent rape victims (street kids), of which there sadly are many in this part of Latin America. In 2004 we began to broaden our program in Latin America to other cities with large street kid populations. To view our history prior to 2001, please go to "Beloved Child". During our 27 years we have been financed either by gifts from our founders and by self sustaining volunteer projects. We are now exploring ways to broaden our funding base in order be able to bring our successful program for street kids to as many Latin American cities as fast as we can. We have been inspired by the generosity of numerous international volunteers who have come from all over the world to help in our program to save and educate street kids.
