Superlearner is an organzation that works in the very poor district of Pamplona Alta in Lima, providing formal and non-formal education for the children in two communities. Many of the children there feel that they can‘t rise above their circumstances and that they feel unworthy.  By working with them we want to empower the children so that they can achieve their dreams one day. 

The mission: the volunteer has to develop educational activities in sport for the children and especially in football. 

The volunteer will be working with Caterina, the project coordinator, and other volunteers. 

The volunteer is expected to adapt to a different cultural background, be able to work in a team and be puntual for meetings.

General tasks: 
  • Organization and development of sport activities for children or their families
  • Participation in the meetings to coordinate the teamwork
  • Social media management to sensitize the people about the topics of intervention of the organization and for fundraising
There are special conditions for this program: all material which is produced during the volunteer time belongs to the NGO and must not be personally used for the volunteer.

The volunteer generally works 2 days a week, but we can arrange a different schedule depending on his availability. We work in two different different districts of Lima and in different communities. 

Unfortunately, we can‘t provide accommodation for volunteers at the moment, but we can help to find a good place in a safe neighborhood in Lima. 

Typical day

In November 2019, we started a structured football (aka soccer 😉) program. Every week our Superlearners spend a few hours learning discipline, perseverance, teamwork and self-confidence... all through the sport of football!

We organize sport's classes twice a week : one day football and another one general sport.

Free-time activities

In Lima there are plenty of free time activities to do. As the city is on the Pacific coast, you can go swimming, surfing or do other water sports. In this huge city there are always a lot of possibilities to go out at night, go to concerts, go shopping or sightseeing, visit museums or go hiking in the surrounding mountains.
