what we do

Make A Miracle believes education is a key to change. We provide full scholarships to young Peruvians that show potential yet have no other means for higher learning. All recipients have a sponsor that not only provides financial help but also encouragement and support throughout their education. Each student has a mentor that helps ensure their success, and eventually help place them in one of the many, promising careers available in Lima.

why sponsor a peruvian?

  • SJL has the lowest income among the 43 districts of Lima

  • The average income per family is $192/month 

  • Only 24% of households in SJL contain someone with higher education, compared with 80% in Miraflores, only 14 miles away

  • In the past 10 years there has been $6.5 Billion in grants awarded for scholarships in the US, compared with $0 in Peru

  • The Ford Foundation has documented a vast scale of change; “scholarship recipients have a profound ‘multiplier’ effect on other individuals, institutions and issues.”

become a sponsor

For only $99 you can personally sponsor a college student.  This provides tuition, books and bus fare.  

You can encourage your student through Facebook, WhatsApp or email, and visit them in Peru if you wish!

Most degrees are earned between 2 to 5 years.

Without a college degree the average Peruvian lives on less than $1/day.
