Educate. Empower. Dream. ~Miles for Girls Education & Empowerment~

Peruvian Hearts is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization based in Golden, CO, that encourages social, economic and political change in Peru through the education and empowerment of young women. We work to end poverty and gender inequality by educating and empowering young women to become community leaders in Peru — one girl at a time. We’re thrilled to be part of the Miles on a Mission program, and all miles donated to Peruvian Hearts will be used to uplift our Peruvian Hearts (PH) scholars through life-changing opportunities, like traveling for university, study abroad, and other empowerment and personal growth opportunities. Our scholars come from disadvantaged economic situations and have overcome many hardships to become the strong and motivated young women they are today. Many have never had the experience of flying, and the opportunity for our scholars to fly with United Airlines will be a dream come true. From a trip for PH scholar and mining engineer Kristel to study a gold mine in Arequipa, Peru, to an opportunity for PH scholar Alexandra to study Economics abroad in Merida, Mexico, every mile raised will give our scholars a transformative experience to travel and learn about other countries and cultures. We’ll also fly two PH scholars to Colorado to meet with Peruvian Hearts supporters at the Annual Supporter Dinner held every December. These experiences will drive our scholars to dream bigger than they already do about how they too can make a positive impact and change the world.

About us

Peruvian Hearts was started by Ana Dodson who was adopted from Peru by American parents in 1992. When Ana went back to Peru to visit when she was 11 years old, she was struck by the extreme poverty and decided to make it her mission to improve conditions for young women. Peruvian Hearts focuses on supporting women of all ages to reach their potential with education, mentorship and community leadership.
