Dedicated to the liberation of people and communities from poverty and injustice

Reaching for New Horizons

Reaching for New Horizons is a project started in the town of Chimbote, Peru. Many of the families live in extreme poverty – there is no running water, sanitation or electricity in town. Edmund Rice Mission established a presence in Chimbote over two years ago. 

Reaching for New Horizons provides support to a primary school of 210 boys and girls under 12 years old. The project improves the educational service of a primary school providing psychological support, fine arts lessons, English as a second language, family training in good parenting skills and a nutrition programme.
