Giving HOPE to the Youth

Help Hope for Youth raise 50k by the end of the year! 

This fundraising initiative is honoring Hope for Youth Peru founder and missionary, Iliana Bustios’s 50th birthday. This year (May 11th) Iliana will be celebrating her “Golden 50″and in honor of God blessing her with this momentous birthday, Hope for Youth Peru wants to raise $50,000, with all proceeds going to the organization.

 Iliana has spent the last 15 years of her life serving the youth starting in  Las Vegas churches and now in the barrios of Peru, with Hope for Youth  Peru. She has been able to make so many positive strides in the lives of  young men and women by helping them stay in school and out of gangs,  keeping them off the streets and in a positive safe environment  with the Hope for Youth house.


What We Do


Our Focus

We are committed to breaking the cycle of youth incarceration in Peru.  Our primary focus is to help young men and woman find hope through education, forgiveness and God’s truth.

Detention Center

Through building relationship and trust with the director and staff, God has opened up doors to Hope For Youth inside the Trujillo juvenile detention center never before walked through by any other organization.


Our young men and women are always excited to have visitors.  Missions in Peru are based on constructing relationships.  Ministry activities can include: detention center activities, youth camps, community outreach, etc.
