Project Peru activities for schools in the UK

Looking out for something different for 2018?

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'

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 2018. 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?

The gift of clean water

 

Project Peru is one of the charity projects supported by The Intrepid Foundation, part of an Australian travel company. If you look at their website you will see we are part of their special Christmas campaign this year: http://theintrepidfoundation.org/ --click on Global Gifts, helping us to maintain our supply of clean drinking water following our introduction of a drinking water fountain in our refuge in 2014.

The Intrepid Foundation will also 'match fund' any general donations to us via their Foundation, and not only at Christmas.
