Emaús Spirituality Centre


Emaús is dedicated to offering spiritual and practical advice and support to victims of violence (domestic as well as political/institutional violence). Victims benefit from professional advice and support with enforcing the necessary legal steps and their consequences. Emaús is also active in education: the centre trains individuals who work with victims of violence in their daily professional lives; in addition, it offers courses on non-violent communication and constructive conflict resolution in schools and various institutions. Emaús' advisory service is mainly used by women and young people experiencing family difficulties. Emaús maintains advice and support centres in Puno as well as Lima.
