This picture was taken on a training day for parents who are new to our Chalice Family Circles. Our Chiclayo site has been building Family Circles for the past four years. They’ve seen many mothers grow to become empowered entrepreneurs.
Through financial training, the mothers learn how to budget sponsorship funds and other income to send their children to school, buy nutritious food, and keep their families healthy. Many also become leaders in their communities thanks to the other skills they develop. Show more

Chalice's Chiclayo Site has partnered with Centro Esperanza (Hope Centre) in the city of Chiclayo since 2004, and since 2018 has been engaged in the Community Project “Families Promoting the Development of their Community”. The Director of Chiclayo Site is Maribel Ordóñez and the Director of Centro Esperanza is Neptalina Flores Jiménez.
The site's sponsorship program supports 207 families and 404 children and adolescents. It seeks the empowerment of women through their personal development and labour abilities, as well as leadership and organization through the Family Circles.
The Community Project “Families as Promoters of the Development of their Community” benefits the families sponsored by the site, while also including non-sponsored families in vulnerable situations, including migrant families. It has three lines of intervention that are developed through training programs: Family School, aimed at 65 families, School of the Neighbourhood, aimed at 100 boys and girls ages 10 to 12, and the CRECER Program, aimed at 60 adolescents.
Throughout all initiatives, the aim is to create development opportunities that promote good practices around exercising of rights, gender equality, interculturality, and care for the environment that allows them to improve their conditions of work life, strengthen citizen participation, and contribute to change in personal, family and social life.
