Niños del Sol is home to a lively family of 23 Peruvian children in a beautiful home on a large lush magical piece of land. These children came to Ninos del Sol alone in the world, orphaned or abandoned. Nearly all of them have been abused and arrived with the trauma of some sort. Viviana and Avishai, the directors and caretakers of Ninos del Sol, are providing these orphans with a home, a family, education, organic food, and a chance at a future.
The work will be with Ninos del Sol on a special, customized project based on the current needs of the organization.

In the afternoons after school, you will have the chance to connect with the children.

David is the founder of Life Force Project. Through travel and experience, he began to feel connected to the life force, which is the universal energy that binds every human, animal, plant, wave, mountain, and cloud. He discovered an inner strength and peace that he had never truly known. He opened his heart to the many lessons of the universe. He listened to the life force, and the world became a magical place full of possibility. It became a world that gives you exactly what you need, when you need it, a world that is always conspiring to support you.
