Our Mission

Peruvian Partners was established so North Americans could connect in a real and significant way with South American families and youth.

In 1987 David and Gina (Ermajean) Stavros uprooted their two young children and followed a call to cross-cultural ministry in Lima, Peru. Within ten years they had planted a church, opened a safe house for children, aided in opening a Medical Post, and established a thriving small group movement encouraging a leadership that is led by Jesus among professional, business and political leaders.

After years of service David and Gina were still continually asking themselves the same question: Is there something preventative they could do so these children don’t end up on the street? God demonstrated to them how walking alongside families of abandoned women with young children and showing them how helping themselves was the answer.

These families have the same dreams we have with one distinct difference…they were born in a developing country and into abject poverty.
