children's home in Peru

Living in the Heart

From Nature

CIMA is located in the district of Cieneguilla, one of the few districts that are not fully urbanized in the south-eastern part of Lima.

CIMA consists of several buildings comprising, 6 houses with capacity to accommodate 96 children and adolescents, the administrative area, the leveling classrooms, the workshops, three football courts, a recreation area, a farm with animals.

CIMA also has access to a rented land of 12000 square meters, which is used for agriculture and whose products serve for the consumption of the home and the animals of the farm.

The CIMA home is located in an area quite far from Lima, inaccessible. However, this isolation is an advantage because it allows children to live in the heart of nature, and completely detach themselves from the urban environment to which they are accustomed, which favors their rehabilitation.
