Volunteering Abroad Shouldn't Cost the Earth

Teaching English to Native Children of the Peruvian Andes Peru

 

Description

We are a non-profit organization that has worked continuously and with great enthusiasm since our legal formation in 2009. We promote self-management within communities, as a means of organization and development.

Our organization needs volunteers for our project with children. These children come from migrant families in areas that have been declared, by the main international development organizations, in extreme situations of poverty and need (Junín, Huancavelica, Ayacucho and Selva Central). We work directly with communities in the Central Andes of Peru, where abandonment and need are great; There is practically no presence of volunteers or state organizations that provide these children with assistance, emotional, emotional, educational or material support. Come and participate in this wonderful cause, helping to improve self-esteem that has been destroyed and helping with education. We also provide an authentic and intense cultural exchange experience, many trips and courses at no cost. Many of the children come from Quechua immigrant families who suffer abandonment and domestic violence caused by their difficult situation and economic, social and cultural marginalization. Come and participate as a volunteer in this project, built with our own hands and with the ambition of carrying out transparent, genuine and direct social work with the community.

The organization offers as compensation:
