Bringing winter comfort to the shanty towns near our refuge

As part of our broad brief we try to give assistance in the shanty towns near our refuge. Especially in winter when, as can be seen, the hills around Lima are shrouded in a damp mist, our staff have been able to distribute warm clothes and knitted items that had been sent in our annual cargo to Peru, to families in the nearby shanty town in Lomas de Zapallal.

Project Peru activities for schools in the UK

Looking out for something different for the new school year?

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'

Volunteer with Project Peru 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 the latter part of 2018 and beyond. 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?
