CASA, Educational Assistance Center

“As a volunteer, you can make a difference in the lives of many children. Join the ‘CASA Project’ and help us build a future full of opportunities and dreams for rural children in Peru. Together, we can be the change they need! Be part of this valuable transformation!”


  • Name: CASA, Educational Assistance Center. 

  • Category: Educational and Social Assistance.

  • Whom we help: Children between 6 and 12 years old living in extreme poverty.

In Peru, many children from rural areas leave education and play to work or take care of their siblings. The “CASA Project” aims to offer these little ones a safe space to learn, play, and develop fully. The project is led by teachers and volunteers, focusing on strengthening academic performance, creativity, and emotional well-being. Help us make the dreams of children in Peru come true!


The “CASA” Assistance Centers are educational and social institutions that bring significant benefits to society, families, and children.

We focus on the poorest children in rural areas, providing a vital resource to help families balance work with family life.

Children are offered games, companionship, cultural and sports activities, and above all, education, in response to their most immediate needs. 

Children receive:

  • Non-formal education, engaging in a variety of educational, artistic, cultural, and other activities.
  • Facilities to complete homework (assistance, materials, books, etc.).
  • Assistance in expanding their social world, promoting relationships by giving them the opportunity to interact with adults who are neither teachers nor parents.
  • Safe spaces to play and meet friends during the time they spend alone while parents are working.

Volunteer Activities:

  • Teaching: Provide classes in areas such as mathematics, sciences, languages, or arts, according to your skills and knowledge.
  • Academic support: Assist with homework, offering guidance in the learning process.
  • Individualized tutoring: Work individually with children who need additional attention, providing personalized support and motivation.
  • Organization of recreational activities: Plan and carry out recreational activities, educational games, and creative projects to promote fun and participatory learning.
  • Development of practical skills: Teach practical and useful life skills, such as cooking, sewing, gardening, among others.
  • Emotional stimulation: Provide emotional support to children, fostering their confidence and self-esteem.
  • Promotion of reading: Encourage children to read, promoting a love for reading and improving their comprehension skills.
  • Assistance in extracurricular activities: Help organize and supervise sports activities, excursions, museum visits, movies, or other enriching experiences.
