Make a Miracle was founded by husband and wife team Jack and Carolyn Canouse. They traveled to Peru with their children on several short-term mission trips and built lasting relationships in the community of San Juan de Lurigancho.
In an effort to empower and bring hope to three of their Peruvian "daughters" they financed their college education. Without this support, the girls had no hope to further their education after high school. Jack and Carolyn realized this is part of the solution to bring lasting change to the community, so they came up with a plan to broaden the scope of their outreach.
Make a Miracle was created in 2015 to gain support from others who want to team up with the Canouses and be a part of this community's transformation through education, housing, and community outreach. They formed a leadership team of mentors in Peru that work with individuals to encourage and promote their success.
Our mission is to bring hope and lasting change to San Juan de Lurigancho, Peru. We work with individuals and communities to transform lives through education, scholarships, housing and community projects.
