Volunteering Abroad Shouldn't Cost the Earth

Volunteer Coordinator and Officer Roles Peru



We are a UK-registered charity supporting marginalised children and young people in Peru. We work through local partner organisations in Cusco and support activities and projects in the areas of formal education; vocational skills and personal development; and sustainability, including income generation, cost reduction and capacity building. We strive to empower our beneficiaries, enabling them to become independent and sustainable.

LAFF is looking to fill a number of different volunteering positions.

Projects Coordinator:

Given that LAFF is a small volunteer-led charity, the Projects Coordinator provides support to the Programme Manager on all aspects of LAFF’s internal operations, programme planning, reporting, budgeting and delivery. This is a diverse role that encompasses all facets of NGO management.

Fundraising Coordinator:

The fundraising component of LAFF’s work aims to increase funds from trusts and foundations, companies, schools and universities in order to support LAFF’s programmes. Working with LAFF’s Communications Officer, this fundraising focused role maintains and improves LAFF’s international and local visibility through innovative strategies and raises awareness about various socioeconomic problems, in particular those affecting children and young people in Peru.

Monitoring and Evaluation Officer:

LAFF’s M&E strategy aims to monitor and evaluate the progress, effectiveness and impact of our programmes and interventions through a participatory and culturally sensitive approach. The Monitoring and Evaluation Coordinator will lead all M&E activities for LAFF, measure indicators, work closely with our partners and beneficiaries in Peru, and produce internal and external reports.

Communications Coordinator:

The Communications Coordinator will be in charge of managing LAFF’s communications strategy, which is guided by three main objectives: fundraising, recruitment and raising awareness. This consists of producing and disseminating information through our website blog, newsletters and social media accounts.

Events and Campaigns Coordinator:

Events and Campaigns at LAFF are seen as a way of engaging and increasing our supporter network. This is a dynamic role which will see you work with the Fundraising and Communications teams to recognise that support is far greater than just financial donations: we put a great value on our community’s time, communication with their personal networks, skills and ideas.
