Project Peru is Formed, Focus is on Empowering and Uplifting
Needy Children and Communities in Peru


Natick, MA, July 15, 1999 – Project Perú, Inc., a non-profit aid organization focused on the welfare of Peruvian children, is formed as a charity and incorporated in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

The organization, headquartered in Natick, Massachusetts with offices in Lima, Peru and Washington, DC was co-founded by Stephen and Cecilia Drake. Cecilia is Peruvian, and much of her family and friends, including her parents still reside in Lima.

“Project Peru was formed on a dream and a promise, said Stephen Drake, also the group’s co-founder and President. The dream that needy Peruvian children, their families and their communities would have an opportunity to improve their lives and the promise of our organization to work with them through a number of healthcare and education projects to realize this dream.”

Project Peru’s initial project will focus on developing a park and soccer field in outlying areas in the Lima neighborhoods.

The organization also looks to focus on a number of other community improvement projects in the same area and in outlying regions in Peru and include a focus on schools, medical facilities and other community areas.
