Our school is located in the city of Trujillo, in the district of La Esperanza. This is one of the largest districts of the city, and also one of the poorest. For this reason, we have chosen to develop our project here.
Our goal is to place children (3 to 15 years old) in public schools to eliminate the rate of illiteracy and the gap of social inequality.
The school is implementing aid programs in the areas of education, child labor, health, nutrition and family planning. We work with the most vulnerable groups regardless of race, religion or social status. Volunteers are free to choose in which field they want to participate, according to their skills, experiences and interests.

You are not going to be left alone with a whole class, but it is good if you can take the initiative and bring your ideas what and how you would want to teach to the kids.
