Begun over 25 years ago in Ventanilla by Miguel Rodriguez, Sagrada Familia has blossomed from what was simply a safe place for street children to sleep into a large school, orphanage, medical clinic, and production-ready vocational workshop. Miguel developed his mission after a family tragedy and puts his energy into providing love and care to all the children coming into the community. Alumni of Sagrada Familia are now working as successful teachers, lawyers, and other professionals. We are always impressed by the scale of their work, the amazing results that Sagrada Familia is able to achieve, and perhaps most impressively – the personal attention given to all the children.
In 2012, with the assistance of VIDA Peru and generous donors, we provided the children of Sagrada Familia with a delivery of clothing, shoes, toys, educational and medical supplies. Watch the video.
Sagrada Familia has been one of the agencies for fellowship placements. Former fellows have worked on projects to improve staff’s capacity to handle trauma cases, building long-term programs for youth activities, and developing organizational systems.
