Bringing Peru to your school

Still at school? Teacher? Parent?

Can we help you to bring a new dimension to your school?

Some schools have adopted us as ‘their charity’ for a term or a year

Some schools have built a Peru module into their curriculum; we’ve done one off ‘charity days’ at schools [e.g. non-uniform days, sponsored walks, quizzes, and other challenges]. We can give advice and encouragement on this, so you can do it.

We can offer interactive workshops, developing creative education for specific age groups, or sales of Peruvian crafts, and contacts with Peruvian musicians.

Bringing volunteering skills into play

One of our volunteers in Peru in early 2012 brought his football coaching skills into play during the school holidays by organising football for all ages,  and other sporting activities, in and near our refuge and also in nearby Las Laderas

If you have any professional or other skills and time to offer, do be in touch to discuss opportunities for volunteering with us.

Back to school again

All the children who are resident in our refuge go to the neighbouring school - attending either for the morning or the afternoon sessions depending on their age. They are  supported by Project Peru in the purchase or provision of a full range of books and educational materials, buying school uniforms, paying the obligatory annual matriculation fee for each child, and other parental contributions. This is a considerable expense particularly at the start of each school year in March. Any help with funds to cover these costs would be much appreciated.
