Make a Miracle is proud to support education through college scholarships. Jack, Rachel, Lady, Rosa, Doris, Dayana, Edith and I held 3 days of interviews with some incredibly inspiring young people from San Juan de Lurigancho, Peru. Some were held outside during a house build, some at Los Pinos school during gardening & building, some at our office before our workshop. We ran out of tissues early on. We laughed, cried, hugged and loudly yelled "aprobado" or approved 14 ti

Backing up: Carmen has been sponsoring Jasson's college education for almost a year, and generously paid for his Visa application to come to the states. It is extremely difficult for Peruvians to get a Visa, but Jasson was approved! A few weeks later he arrived for a whirlwind 2 1/2 week tour of
Our scholarship students are amazing! Here is a brief story about one of our graduates, Kathy, who is now a dentist. When our June team was in Peru, we had a Peruvian couple working with us on a house build. Everyone noticed how hard they worked, and unlike us, they really knew what they were doing. They were with us every day that we built, and wanted nothing in return. Who were these mystery volunteers? They are the parents of two of our amazing scholarship students....

Liz has had a difficult life so far, like many Peruvians, and has overcome many hardships. She is a cheerful, glowing young woman who wants to make a better life for herself. Liz had a dream to be the first person in her family to go to college. She had gotten into a University to study to be a chef, but there was no aid available for her to go. With a scholarship from Make a Miracle, Liz graduated chef school in April, and is now studying English with the dream of a caree
As a teenager, Basilia lived at the Hope House Girl’s Home with her sisters. She was sad, timid and unsure of herself, yet was considered very smart and a leader at the house. Basilia had a dream to be able to support her younger sisters while also helping others. She dreamed of setting a good example by going to school and becoming a Physiotherapist. Unfortunately, living in San Juan de Lurigancho, the poorest district of Lima, her life after high school was most likely t
Meet Basilia. Basilia was born into a poor family of eleven children in the mountains of Peru. Her parents were so poor that they brought her and some of her siblings to a girl's home (Hope House) in the district of Lima in the hope of a better future. I met her when she was about to turn 18, the age when you were forced to leave the Hope House.
