We believe that all children have the right to read, to write and to share their words to change the world. This project helps them tell their story.
Huanchaco is a beautiful coastal town where the waves are perfect all year long, for all types of surfers. Huanchaco is surrounded by some mountains where it is possible to go hiking (tours are arranged by local guides, at reasonable prices). Furthermore, there's a beautiful white mountain range, the cordillera blanca, situated in Huaraz, fairly close to Huanchaco (9h bus ride), which offers a good many hiking and climbing possibilities in the most fascinating landscape. If you prefer cultural activities, we are a few minutes away from the Chan Chan and Huaca del sol y de la luna, which are among the most well-preserved temple ruins of the old Incan empire that can be found in Peru. The town of Huanchaco has a gym, and you can find some fields to play basketball and football close to the beach.
Given prior knowledge, OCN will arrange for their new volunteers to be picked up at the airport or bus station in Trujillo upon arrival and brought to their accommodation facilities in Huanchaco.
