Friends of the Orphans supports the Nuestros Pequeños Hermanos (Spanish for “Our Little Brothers and Sisters”) network of homes located in Latin America and the Caribbean. NPH currently has homes in nine countries: Bolivia, the Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Guatemala, Haiti, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua and Peru. The homes are located near cities, making services and supplies easily accessible. At the same time, they are relatively isolated and have extensive grounds. This provides our children with safety and security, which they may not have experienced before joining the NPH family.
All of the homes strive to be self-sustaining and have:
- Living spaces
- Kitchens and dining halls
- Workshops where children can learn trades such as carpentry and welding
- Farms/gardens to produce food for the children, staff and volunteers
While all NPH homes are guided by the same principles and philosophies, features vary from site to site. To learn more about a particular home, click it on the map.
