Our social project is a Peruvian NGO that helps disadvantaged kids develop their self-esteem through educational workshops in English, art, sports and cultural exchange in Alto Trujillo, Peru. It was created in 2013 by Trujillanos. The local school we help in Alto Trujillo is unable to comply with the national curriculum and give kids the education that they deserve: the teachers are not qualified/able to teach English.
Volunteers teach all 6 grades (age 6 to 13). Thanks to our volunteers, we provide invaluable support to the teaching team and run English classes for around 370 schoolkids every day. The children greatly benefit from our program and our self-esteem workshops. We aim to create a platform for cultural exchange between our volunteers and the schoolkids, as well as their families, which promotes interaction, social behaviour, respect and personal development, all in English.
In addistion we do the After-School Program that takes place everyday at school between 1pm to 3pm. It is a cultural exchange program that is free and open to everyone.
