Ninos del Sol

A Revolutionary Children’s Home in Peru’s Sacred Valley

Since 1990, Niños del Sol has been raising a group of orphaned and abandoned youth in a non-traditional Children’s Home. Instead of an institution, they’ve grown up as a family, with daily yoga, meditation, and lots of love.

This video gives a great overview of our history, our mission, and our kids.

A Revolution in Love and Healing

Our innovative program works.

Today, these kids starting to graduate college and begin careers in filmmaking, science, tourism, and the arts. Three have even volunteered on a kibbutz in Israel.

These “disadvantaged” kids are inspiring other young people in their village to dream bigger — and breaking cycles of poverty and abuse in their families forever.

Our kids know how to grow food organically and take turns preparing nourishing meals. 

Yoga, mindfulness, and meditation help them deal with the pressures of adolescence and young adulthood.

In March of 2025 our youngest kids will be in college, and our work will be done. But we can’t get to that finish line without your help.

Our income is way down since the pandemic. Right now, we’re struggling to provide even the basics for the younger children.

Our innovative program receives ZERO government funding or grants. Everything we do is funded by loving hearts like yours. Most of our donors give just $25 a month — but together, we are changing lives.

Our Groundbreaking Educational Initiative

Kids who are “in the system” often find themselves facing a tragic lack of support when they’ve finished high school, during a vulnerable time of life that will lay the foundation for their future.

That’s why we provide a second home —an apartment in Cusco * — to support our college-age kids while they follow their dreams and live semi-independently.

* During the pandemic, we’ve been forced to close our second location. Most of our post-secondary students are studying remotely from our main location in Urubamba, and we remain committed to supporting them into their adult careers.

Our kids have earned this support. One of our girls was the youngest ever admitted to the Chemical Engineering program at Cusco University. Others are studying economics, tourism, international business, and graphic arts. Our college kids are beating the odds and laying the groundwork to be the leaders of tomorrow.
