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 

The volunteer will be working with Jorge, the founder of the project, 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. It is essential to bring a personal device like a laptop or tablet.

General tasks: 
  • Support with general nutrition and with specific meal programs
  • Organization and development of food education workshops for children or their families
  • Production of educational material
  • Participation in the meetings with the teamwork
The volunteer usually works five days a week, generally from 9:30 am to 5:30 pm. but we can arrange a different schedule depending on his availability. We work in two different different districts of Lima and in different communities. 

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.

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

On the days of field work, the volunteers go by bus to a meeting point. They develop the activity (generally 2 hours maximum) and come back to the office or to their houses. The nutritionist could organize and develop some workshops on food education with the help of the other volunteers. He could develop a project with the children's families to detect health problems connected to nutrition and to plan specific meal programs. He could make a research on food habits in the area of Pamplona Alta and stipulate collaborations with the medical center of the district and with other entities involved in providing food to families with low income. 

The office work is complementary to the field work, so depending on the schedule of field activities, it could be during the morning or in the afternoon. The schedule of the office work can be flexible if the volunteer needs it or if he can work independently.

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.
