Internship with children in the Peruvian Andes, educational and emotional support to children of Quechua origin in risk and abandonment

PERU / Sharing Dreams Project

We invite you to participate and develop your professional skills in a project aimed at providing support, encouragement, educational and emotional assistance to children who live at risk.

These children come from Quechua migrant families from areas within the Peruvian Andes and have been affected by political violence, social, economic and cultural marginalization, in general, by extreme poverty (poverty map of the Peruvian government). The project is being developed in areas around the Mantaro Valley in the central Andes of Peru. These areas lack basic services and hygiene, and are populated by dysfunctional families that are subject to problems of sexism, domestic violence, alcoholism, among others. We intervene directly in the areas and communities, using a holistic approach and doing a direct social work.

We are a civil organization that promotes volunteering, operating with a flat structure and working directly with communities. We undertake teamwork and promote the self-development of communities. Our projects are carried out in situ, without intermediaries. In addition, we offer a real and fun method of cultural exchange.
