Manuel Duato Special Needs School (Peru)

Children with disabilities in poverty-stricken areas of Lima, Peru, reach their potential at a Columban-founded school.

The Manuel Duato school was organized by Columbans more than 30 years ago in response to the large numbers of poor Lima families raising children with mental disabilities.

Today, the school serves more than 500 children. Many of the students are preschoolers, while a large number of the children have hearing impairments that make learning difficult.

Another 30% of the students suffer from difficulties such as Down syndrome. Almost 25% are in occupational therapy which gives the students a chance to participate in workshops that give them life skills for their adult years.

Our parents help out the school financially when they can. But they are so poor, that we need outside help to keep the school running.

The items listed in our Gifts to Give section are reflections of how past donations have been put to good use. Occasionally, we receive more donations for a project than can be reasonably applied to that project. When that happens, your gift will be used to support the work of the Columban Fathers where the need is greatest.
