The Hijos de Luya Centre, built by ROTH In 2008, successfully continues to accommodate the children of the Luya slum. With most of the children under the age of 3, the centre offers a basic education, potable water, two healthy meals a day as well as essential health care services. The centre also acts as a safe place for parents to bring their children during the day while they go into the city for work.
Built by ROTH with the intention of housing community programmes, the second kitchen in the building has recently been approved to enter the “Pansoy” programme. Through this programme, the community will be given a machine evaluated at 20,000 Soles (approximately $7,000 CDN) and 400kg of soy.
The group of local women chosen to participate in this programme will be trained in the production of soymilk and taught how to incorporate this into crepes and deserts that they can then sell in local markets. In exchange, the group of women must distribute 5 days a week a ration of soy based products to 300 of the most needy families in their community. Stay tuned to hear about their progress!
