Peru: Nuevo Amanecer Juntos

Partner in Peru since 2010

Socioeconomic Context

34 cases of sexual violence against children and adolescents are reported in Peru each day (UNICEF, 2023).

What We Fund

The “Casa del Buen Trato Hovde” serves as a sanctuary and transitional residence for girls who have experienced sexual and physical abuse. Typically, the girls reside at the facility for approximately two years, during which they receive education, essential care, psychological counseling, and spiritual support. While the girls are under the protection of Hovde Home, Nuevo Amanecer Juntos collaborates with local authorities to pursue justice in court against the perpetrators of the girls’ abuse.

About Our Partner

Nuevo Amanecer Juntos promotes gender equality, prevention, rehabilitation, and reintegration of child and adolescent victims of sexual assault. They offer protection, comprehensive care, and supportive services to 40 youth annually. The programs help the girls recover from their trauma and empower them to lead healthy, happy lives.
