Infrastructure

 
   

Villa Martha is located in the village of Picapiedra in the Lima District of Peru. The campus is comprised of 2 buildings (an area of 5,589 m2 approximately), together housing our dormitories, kitchen and dining halls, bakery, offices, and recreational rooms. We maintain a large working farm that supports both livestock and vegetables, meeting nearly all of our food needs.

In addition, there is ample space for our children to run freely and play such games as soccer and volleyball. We also have an on-site chapel for Sunday worship.
