Where children learn to dream and dream to learn


Our Programs

 Academic Classes

Academic Classes

Beginning in the 2nd grade, and continuing through high school, Victor’s Vision students receive three extra hours of schooling per day, five days a week. With an average student teacher ratio of just 6:1, Victor’s Vision teachers are
able to focus on the individual needs of their students in all core subject areas: math, communication arts, and science. Victor’s Vision’s university certified teachers also provide character development support to their students, ensuring that all Victor’s Vision students grow up to be well-rounded individuals.
 Field Trips

Field Trips

Victor’s Vision students participate in three exploratory field trips to various cities throughout Peru every year. These trips give students the opportunity to explore outside of their community, broadening their worldly perspectives
and increasing their potential to dream of a lifestyle different than what they have seen in their own neighborhood. On this trips, students explore new cities, museums, universities, and engage in experiences they otherwise would not have.
 Nutrition

Nutrition

Since many Victor’s Vision students enter the program malnourished, we provide every student with an extra meal every day they attend Victor’s Vision programing. Each meal provided is well balanced including the proper dietary
nutrients necessary for a child to develop both physically and mentally. By providing our students with extra meals, we hope to ensure that all Victor’s Vision students are healthy learners.
 Parent Workshops

Parent Workshops

Victor’s Vision understands that real change and growth for students begins in the home. Without the proper familial support and guidance, children in Chulucanas often drop out of school before the 6th grade. Through monthly
parent workshops and regular home visits, Victor’s Vision gives its families a constructive environment to learn about the value of long-term education and discuss relevant issues in their lives.
