Supporter for Social Bakery

Trujillo, Peru show on map

Non-profit | Mundo de Niños

Volunteers will help develop and run this project, take care of sales, management, and other tasks if relevant. They will support the teenagers who are working there. This volunteer program is especially suitable for:

Mundo de Niños is setting up a new project of a social bakery called Mundopan that aims, among other, at bringing to the boys living in the Mundo de Niños Home the opportunity to learn how to be financially self-sufficient and responsible. They will learn how to act in a professional environment, be responsible with money, be polite to customers, etc. For these children, who come from dysfunctional families living in poverty, this project gives them the opportunity of a better future. This social bakery will also be a way for the Home to be financially independent and to cover its running costs such as maintenance and daily life at the Home. 

The volunteer(s) will work together with the director of the project as well as with the shop team and the children designated to help in the bakery. The bakery is located right next to the Home, so it is easy to go visit the children and work at the bakery at the same time. We are looking for volunteers who have knowledge in project management, accounting, business development, or who have a training in bakery/pastries/food industry. However we will consider all applications, these skills are not the only ones that can be relevant for this project. 

For the volunteer, it is a chance to take part in a brand new project and contribute to run it and make it work on the long term. The tasks will be more accurately defined after an interview, depending on the volunteer's skills and motivations, and on the current needs.

Typical day

The day is divided into shifts, to be chosen by the volunteers: from 7 am-12 pm or from 3 pm to 7 pm

Tasks include: 

Support the bakers during bread production

Support the sales management once a week

Supervise and accompany the teenagers from the Home in their learning of commercial processes and the management of the stock of goods

Support the children in their cleaning and tidying tasks 

Details on Arrival

Volunteers are welcome all year long for a minimum of one month. They can choose their working time and days, according also to the current needs at the Home and Bakery.

Free-time activities

Our volunteers can have a discount on surf classes. The Home is in fact located on the Pacific coast where many people like to surf.

You can swim in the Pacific ocean that is a few meters away from the Home. On the weekends, you can visit many cities nearby (e.g. Huaraz, Cajamarca, Chiclayo, Lima, Conache, etc. which you can reach easily by bus) and hike in the mountains or visit the ruins and museums of the region (Chan Chan, Huacas del Sol y de la Luna, Museo Moche, etc.).

Huanchaco is a very multicultural seaside town, where many free activities are offered for tourists as well as locals.
