The projects range from a Children’s Home and  Communal Kitchen for the elderly to schools in the poorest areas of Peru to catechetical materials for the Peruvian church. Outreach Peru is actively engaged in helping to prepare young Amazonian participants for the forthcoming Synod on the Amazon which will take place in Rome in October 2019.
