Volunteer in Peru, In this community most families rely on public day care facilities to watch their children. These essential services are provided in the fringe communities where children live in abject poverty.  The centers typically have about 30 children ages 8 months to 3 years old. Our volunteers work alongside a “Mom” and be an extra set of hands in the daily chores. The staff educate the kids, play with them and provide them nutritious food, all for free. Since most of the children come from poor families, the food they receive in the day care center is vital.

Volunteers will contribute to the education, child care, health and nutrition support provided by the centers. Tasks will focus on feeding, changing diapers, pre-school educational games and recreational learning support.

Volunteers with basic Spanish are welcome. Language Immersion lessons are available.
