Building an inclusive future for children and youth with disabilities

Join our program and be part of the positive change in the lives of these children and youth. Your dedication, care, and support will make a lasting difference in their development and well-being. Together, we will build an inclusive future full of opportunities for all

Area: Special Education

Whom we help:

  • Children and adults with different types of disabilities: intellectual, physical, auditory, visual.


  • Provide comprehensive support and attention to children and adolescents with special educational needs, particularly those with intellectual and/or sensory disabilities. We focus on the development of their cognitive, motor, social, and emotional skills, with the aim of promoting their full integration into society.

Description: We focus on developing cognitive, motor, social, and emotional skills, providing a safe and supportive environment where children and adolescents can fully develop. Additionally, we work in collaboration with families, offering guidance and counseling to promote active participation and continuous support at home. The well-being of children is one of society’s most important responsibilities, but the poor economic conditions in Peru, along with hunger, malnutrition, unemployment, and the lack of good medical care, have resulted in a high level of disabilities affecting children and their families. We are committed to promoting their development, inclusion, and well-being in an environment of love and respect.

The Expand Peru volunteer program promotes various activities that enhance the quality of care and special education services that children with disabilities need, thereby improving their quality of life and social integration.
