PROJECT - RURAL SCHOOLS

"Education for boys and girls in rural areas"

INTERNATIONAL VOLUNTEERING

Area:

  • Education.

Who we help:

  • Girls and boys between the ages of six and twelve who attend schools in rural areas.

Objectives:

  • Promote social and educational development by strengthening skills through the formal teaching of English, computing, and art.
  • Promote the human and intellectual development of children.
  • Improve opportunities of children by giving them tools that schools cannot normally provide.

Program description:

  • Rural schools are primary-level educational centers. They are economically dependent on the Peruvian state and formal education is provided for children between 6 and 12 years of age. In these schools, a deficit of professionals and lack of an appropriate budget make it impossible for children to have activities that adequately complement traditional education, making it an incomplete education. Expand Peru, through the Rural Schools program, dictates a multitude of courses that allow children to acquire different knowledge and skills such as: computing, English, and art, among others. This is why we need your help to improve the educational level of our schools and thereby help children have a good education and a better future.

Volunteer work/activities:

  • The important thing about volunteering in this project is the interaction with children, they need a lot of attention and dedication. According to their abilities, volunteers can choose the course that they can best develop, between: English, Art and Computing. If you have any different qualities let us know to organize something special. Remember that everything that can contribute to personal and emotional growth of children is useful and necessary.
