About us

Bridges is a family of volunteers that promotes the initiative of each person in the work of personal and community reconciliation through effective fraternal service and genuine personal encounter.

We believe that the fulfilment of the human person is realised in the encounter of charity.  Hoping to create true unity in a society that is divided by diverse circumstances, we seek to facilitate the opportunity to live love.  We therefore look to create solutions for the volunteers and the needy in order to make a real difference.

The work

Building the Bridges

Through our various partnerships, the specific projects we offer share the common goal of reaching out to the human person, in his diverse, unique, and integral reality.

Community Infrastructure Projects in Shantytowns:

We aim to assist the poorest of the poor in helping to make a change in the shantytowns of Lima towards a more dignified way of living. We assist in specific projects such as construction of public staircases, retention walls, parks, community buildings, reparation of chapels and other similar services.

Visits to Schools for Children with Disabilities:

These schools seek to form and rehabilitate children and youth with motor and other physical disabilities. Our visits seek to meet the students in their condition and offer assistance in workshops.

Nursing Homes, Homeless Shelters & Hospital Visits:

These visits seek to offer all types of accompaniment to the elderly and those in Lima who are in most need. We look to attend to essential needs, promoting the integral good of the suffering human person.

Solidarity Mission Trips to Peruvian Highlands & Jungle:

Two-week volunteer experiences to assist impoverished communities in the Peruvian Andes and Jungle. Students help in solidarity work, receive talks on social justice and environmental issues, and do eco-tourism to develop environmental awareness, all within the natural beauty of Peru.
