Camilla has been Volunteering in a Creche with children in Cape town

I volunteered in a creche with children of 0 to 6 years old in Masiphumelele, a Township in Fish Hoek – Cape Town. Most of the time I worked with children from 5 to 6 years old, who at home would speak a language called Khosa, and at school they learn English. So, the volunteers teach them the shapes, colors, numbers, and among other basic things in English. In addition to literacy we play a lot, give hugs, lap, care, dance and sing. It is very fun and rewarding, a unique experience and difficult to explain with just words. My heart has multiplied!
I lived in a house with more volunteers from all over the world, I met and made many friends. Moreover, the region is beautiful and has many places to visit, adventures and food to try.

What is your advice to future travelers volunteering at the Creche?

My advice is to volunteer de maximum of time you can. Just 1 or 2 weeks is not enough! All the volunteers I met that only went for a short time were sad they didn’t stayed for longer. So what recommend that is the perfect amount of time is staying for 1 month. The time will pass so fast that you will not even notice. I know it’s hard because you think you will miss your family and friends a lot, but you will make so many new friends in your new home, will go to so many adventures that the time will fly! – Camilla Bartholomei Santos, from Brazil

Kindergarden Teacher in an Amazonian Village close to Iquitos, Peru

Eduarda traveled to a small village in the Peruvian Amazon and worked as a kindergarden teacher. Read her testimonial here, and find above the photo of Sangeetha Agara from Canada, who was working with children in Cusco!

I traveled by Iko Poran to Iquitos Peru on March of this year. I volunteered there for one week as assistant of kindergarden teacher in Padre Cocha, where it is an small Amazonian village.
This trip was an amazing experience for me .
The kids are lovely, I was completely imerge in the local culture, that way I practice a lot my Spanish. Also if you are looking for a place where you can rest, be in contact with the nature and learn more about the local, this trip will be perfect for you. Jenny and her family are excellent hosts. – Eduarda

Child Development in Peru at a Rural Kindergarten

Volunteer on child development in Peru working as a teaching assistant in a rural kindergarten.

In the teaching assistant projects you will be working as a part of PRONOEI. PRONOEI is a Peruvian government sponsored preschool initiative in the poorest areas of Peru, where mothers from within the community receive teacher training to work with a group of 30 children between 3 to 5 years old.

Volunteering at a Kindergarten in Peru and assist the Promotoras

These community mothers, also called promotoras, have a huge challenge to keep their classes running, receiving very little support from the Peruvian state. They are nonetheless doing a formidable job, but that’s why receiving volunteers to assist in the classroom can be such a huge help.

Child Development in Peru: Playing with the Children and Teaching in the Classroom

You will be assisting them with classroom activities and playing with the children. The facilities in these PRONOEIs are limited to the most basic; they are often missing adequate restrooms, large enough classrooms, playground areas and teaching materials, but the children who attend them are so happy and thankful to be receiving an education that you will find the experience to be truly humbling. In your spare time you can explore the mysteries of this astounding place and get to know the real Peru.

You can choose between volutneer programs in Arequipa, Peru’s beautiful white-stone city shadowed by the famous El Misti Volcano; Cusco, the Inca capital and the archaeological capital of the Americas; and Iquitos, the gateway to the Peruvian Amazon.

Volunteer inside an Amazonian Ethnic Group close to Iquitos

Volunteers in Iquitos will be located inside an Amazonian ethnic group located 15 minutes by boat from Iquitos city.

Volunteers must love children and have a positive and creative attitude to make the most of the limited resources available. You will gain valuable teaching experience, while helping to keep these educational projects going.
