Through partnerships with local schools and community resource programs, the TEACH program has provided support for students, teachers, classrooms, and schools. This support is mainly comprised of educational supplies, but also includes necessities families may need such as clothing, shoes, household items, and more.
Ensuring that the home environment for students feels more balanced, is another way to surround our local students with support for their success in life!

Academic education is free and relatively accessible for students within the nation of Peru, enabling the majority of school-aged children to achieve a proper foundational start in life. WWLM’s partnership with the Mision Centro Cristiano Avivamiento (Christian Mission Revival Center) aims at supporting the faith-based education of children throughout the country.
This is accomplished through youth sports programs, community family activities, and parent classes that provide guidance and parenting principles. All of these come together to allow the children to be surrounded by a healthy support system.
