KAIROS VILLAGE

Join Us in Rescue and Restoration

KAIROS VILLAGE is an anti-trafficking initiative in the Amazon Region of Peru. It is a place of refuge, healing and renewal for girls rescued from the grips of trafficking.

Our team works in partnership with local authorities to provide the best care possible as young girls work toward healing and discovering new life.

Since opening in April of 2019, the Kairos Village Team has hosted 9 girls who have been rescued. 7 of them are now in the safety of the Village, while the other 2 were able to be reunited with their families by the Peruvian government. Kairos Village is meeting an essential need in Iquitos — without it, these girls would have no place to heal.

It takes a lot of resources and time to do this well, but each of these girls is worth it all:

ABOUT KAIROS

Nearly 20 years ago Kairos Ministries began, and now consists of a church, two schools, and the village. Since that time, they have been tirelessly building bridges in their community by providing quality education and care for vulnerable children, and counseling and support for struggling families.

The village was launched out of our local leader’s vision to serve the most vulnerable and abused in the community. It is a place of safety – an environment where young women and girls rescued from the grips of trafficking are guided through the work of recovery and restoration – allowing them to build a vision of hope for their future.
