San Pedro

San Pedro is a village in the northern part of the city of Chimbote in Peru. The village was formed in 1956, when some 50 young families settled on the Cerro de San Pedro, a sandy hill. The number of inhabitants did not cease to grow and today San Pedro has a population of about 13,000.

San Pedro has a subtropical climate with average temperatures of 32°C in summer and 14°C in winter.

San Pedro has seen a rather large number of its people leave for bigger cities in Peru and also to foreign countries.

Education

San Pedro has a few schools for primary education and one school for secondary education.

Many parents do not think education for their children at a young age is important. They generally do not send their children to school before the age of five. One of the reasons is also that the material parents need to buy for school, is rather expensive for them.

Most often, parents do not have enough time for their children, because both parents work. They like teachers to give their children a lot of homework. That way, the children are kept busy and stay at home. Most parents do not consider lessons about nature care and social themes to be interesting.

Facilities

San Pedro is a poor village. It does have water, electricity and sewage. Many houses are still made of wood and adobe. Many streets do not have sidewalks and are not paved. Throughout the village there are little parks and recreation areas. A few medical centres can provide first line care. There are several primary schools and one secondary school. An important meeting point in San Pedro is the Mercado de Abastos or local market.

Commerce

San Pedro has many small bars and cafés, restaurants, phone and internet cafés, bakeries, hairdressers, furniture makers, transport companies, garages….

Many inhabitants of San Pedro work in the local market.
