What is the Paul Lammermeier Foundation?
The Paul Lammermeier Foundation provides safe, value-centered, and loving homes for impoverished children living in Lima, Peru. These children, who typically begin the program around the age of 13, are given food, clothing, education, tutoring, medical care, and extracurricular activities.
By creating an environment in which to nurture the minds and spirits of these Peruvian youth it is their hope to provide the educational background necessary for these children to break the cycle of poverty. This includes the needed support and guidance for these children to work towards university education.
