Sharing Dreams-Peru

Counselling and Teaching Children

Social project to help children at risk in the Andes

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. 

the volunteer can perform the following tasks:

Organize and prepare lessons of English to children, help get the materials for classes and various workshops, teaching classes of English to children, cleaning the living classes of children, help prepare the snack for children, develop educational games and outdoor sports, crafts help, accompany the children, help in the office.
