Project Peru activities for schools in the UK

We have held many "Peru Days" in schools...or schools have 'adopted' us for a term or a year, or have linked Peru to a programme of activities in the national curriculum, or have just held a 'one-off' charity day in support of us. Such awareness raising sessions have been held in a variety of schools, and can be tailored to specific needs. Some geographical constraints will apply but, please, for more information, see http://projectperu.org.uk/uk-activities/schools.htm

Ask us about our sessions, particularly at primary level, including a workshop 'El Nuevo Mundo'

Sun, sand and Summer

One of our regular activities during the Peruvian Summer is to give the children and staff, and some of their children, a holiday by the sea which is for all of them an unforgettable experience; we are invited to stay near Casma, north of Lima. A good time is always had by all! These are some of their activities and arts and crafts.

A career break? Just retiring? Just a break? Volunteer in Peru?

We can arrange tailored volunteer placements in our project in Peru for volunteers of all ages and are looking for volunteers at any time during 2017. We can be quite flexible, so just enquire and we can discuss it with you! There is a whole range of activities that volunteers may be engaged in, and the more varied the skills that a volunteer can offer the better. Many volunteers also raise sponsorship money for us by doing the Inca Trail. You might do  some work in our garden? or in our library? teach English? learn Spanish? art? music? sports? computers? building? sewing? help look after our children?

Fun and games at the refuge

 That's what it seems like at times but even to entertain one child can cost a lot ...and we have over 50! So anything you can do in a variety of ways to support us would be a big bonus! See some options here; http://projectperu.org.uk/fundraising/other-ways-of-giving.htm

We have team games, sports days, football competitions, an 'adventure play' area, a Scout group, bikes and scooters, table top and board games, jigsaws, card games and Scouts, among other activities.

Viva la musica y la danza!

As you walk through the streets near our refuge you may hear the sound of pan-pipes and singing, laughter and dancing feet as the children enjoy security and warmth, affection and care, singing, theatre and dance. Dances from the coast, mountains and jungles of Peru, accompanied by children playing the cajon, the panpipes, drums, flutes, charangos, guitars...and songs.
