Este programa de refuerzo escolar tiene como principal objetivo ayudar a los niños y jóvenes peruanos de entornos vulnerables, que acuden a este centro en busca de mejores oportunidades educativas. 

Un gran problema al que se enfrentan estos niños y jóvenes es la discriminación lingüística: los idiomas de los nativos de las tierras altas y la selva a menudo se asocian con la pobreza y la falta de educación; Los niños que hablan estos idiomas enfrentan importantes dificultades para adaptarse al sistema y sentirse cómodos y empoderados con su cultura. Por eso, este proyecto también busca apoyar a los niños y jóvenes que enfrentan esta discriminación y empoderarlos.

Nuestro principal objetivo es crear un espacio en el que los niños y jóvenes se sientan cómodos, donde puedan desarrollarse, aprender, adquirir nuevas habilidades y disfrutar de su infancia.

Como voluntario, puede contribuir en cuatro áreas principales: educación, nutrición, salud e higiene y recreación. Algunas de las tareas específicas que puede realizar son:
  • Impartición de talleres y charlas para mejorar la autoestima
  • Impartir clases de refuerzo en materias como arte, matemáticas, español, dibujo e inglés.
  • Apoyando en nuestras áreas de recreación con juegos didácticos
  • Planificación de visitas a museos, viajes a parques o piscinas.
  • Alimentos para niños
  • Días de salud

Typical day

Los voluntarios trabajan los días laborables (de lunes a viernes), de 15:00 a 18:00. Los fines de semana son libres para que los voluntarios visiten todos los hermosos lugares disponibles para ellos en Perú.


Free-time activities

Peru is one of the most diverse countries you could go to: it has everything from jungle to mountains, from historical cities and inca ruins to a bustling modern capital, from sandy beaches to sandy desert oases... Peru has everything you would like to discover as a traveler and far more. Some of the places we would recommend you to visit during your stay here are:
  • Lima: Peru's capital, it's located in its central coast. Here you may find modern buildings and beautiful historical monuments, with warm temperatures all year round. Lima has even been declared a World Heritage Site due to its astonishing concentration of monuments. Some of the monuments we recommend you to visit are the Citadel of Pachacamac, the palace Torre Tagle Plaza de Acho, the House of the Inquisition, the National Museum, and the Alameda de los Descalzos.
  • Cusco: Known as the "Navel of the World" and the city where you will be staying at during your volunteering, it's one of Peru's main tourist spots. Cusco is well known for being a charming and mystical city, filled with unique churches, colonial buildings, picturesque streets, and very friendly people. While in Cusco, you can visit places like the Plaza de Armas, Qurikancha,  and Saqsaywaman. Additionally, from Cusco you can go visit Machu Picchu, one of the archaeological jewels of the world, and a place you can definitely not miss.
  • Manu National Park: A national park right in the Peruvian Amazon, it's the perfect oportunity for you to discover the world's greatest biodiversity, while also getting to know many of the native communities that still live and maintain their traditions in it. It's the perfect place for any person who loves nature, travel, and responsible tourism.
  • Callejón de las Huaylas: A valley of immesurable beauty, with many landscapes, where you can find a large amount of places to visit, such as Inca relics in places like Honcopampa and Tumshucaico, picturesque Andean towns filled with folkore and traditions, 22 hot springs (of which the most well-known are the Chancos Hot Springs and the Monterrey Thermal Baths), lagoons, cascades, and many other places that are part of the charm of this valley.
  • Huacachina: A village built surrounding a desert oases in the South of Peru, it's an excellent place to discover a unique culture, and explore the desert. There are also opportunities to do sand boarding.
