The work of the Peru Children’s Trust is divided into 2 main areas, a Training Centre (which also houses Production Areas and a Medical Centre), which includes a sewing workshop and a chef school, and work with Families in extreme poverty, with a particular concern for child education. As well as contributing to the overall management of the work, Paul is involved in both these areas.

He is working with the management of the  Training Centre to help it become financially sustainable and legally recognised. He has also written and is giving 4 different courses on Business Start-Up to the students, based on learning through practise, rather than listening to theory.

He is also responsible for a number of projects with the families. A survey he conducted in 2010 showed that the families suffer from some problems more than others and that those problems are often debilitating.

In response to these findings, Paul has written and is teaching a course on Basic Money Management and has set up a Savings Scheme (“Programa Manzana”) for the families to use.

He is also currently working to help 18 families have access to decent water and sanitation, through a Toilet Project and is working with 5 families in one community to improve their diets
and nutritional knowledge through a pilot Home Gardening Project.
