Volunteering Abroad Shouldn't Cost the Earth

Teaching English to Native Children of the Peruvian Andes Peru

 

Description

We are a legal non-profit organization that is working continuously and with great enthusiasm since our legal formation in 2009. We promote self-management within communities, as a means of organisation 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 organisations of international development, to be in a situation of extreme poverty and need (Junín, Huancavelica, Ayacucho and Central Rainforest). We work directly with communities of the Central Andes of Peru, where the neglect and need is great; there is virtually no presence of volunteering or state organisations providing these children with assistance, emotional, caring, educational or material support. Come and participate in this wonderful cause, by helping to improve self-esteem that has been destroyed, and by assisting with education. Many of the children come from dysfunctional migrant Quechua families that suffer from neglect and domestic violence that is caused by their difficult situation and economic, social and cultural marginalisation. Come and participate as a volunteer on this project, built with our own hands and with the ambition of undertaking transparent, genuine and direct social work with the community.
