Ninos Del Sol is a home for children in the Sacred Valley of Peru.  Our children came to us when they were young; many arrived under 5 years of age, some as toddlers and infants.  Now we have kids in middle school all the way up to University, some have graduated and started lives of their own.  This post features three of our kids and gives you a taste of what we are all about.


Jose Luis, age 18, has been with us since 2004. He is a kind, helpful young gentleman who loves to lend a hand. He’s studying Graphic Design at a technical school in Cusco, but has always dreamed of being an actor.

We currently have 10 kids in college, and the others are growing up fast. This is expensive, but we don’t want to turn our backs on these kids at this most pivotal point in their lives. Click here to offer Jose Luis and the others your support!


Ermelinda was just three when she arrived at the Casa in 2000. Now she’s 19 years old, and is already in her third year studying Chemical Engineering at San Antonio Abad University in Cusco.

This is Ada. At 14, she’s in between the older and younger kids at the Casa, but she tends to hang with the younger crowd where she’s a natural leader. She’s a quiet girl, but very bright and friendly. She arrived at Niños Del Sol with her three brothers, Raul, Luis and Rusbel, in 2010.

Meet all our kids here!
