Teaching Assistant at a Rural Kindergarden in Peru – Cusco

I spent two weeks as a teaching assistant at a rural kindergarden. The experience was way different than I expected.

Loving and Affectionate Children at the Rural Kindergarden

The children live very difficult family circunstances and you have to be ready to see and hear some heartbreaking experiences. Nonetheless they are very loving and affectionate to volunteers so you instantaneously feel welcomed. Then is up to you how you want to make an impact.

The Children really needed Love and Support

In my experience I came to the realisation that you cannot educate them in two weeks, and what these children really needed was love and support.

Iko Poran offer support at all times

I recommend Iko Poran for this type of program because they offer support at all times if any doubts or concerns arise.
I was able to contact the Peruvian based advisor by whatsapp at al times regrding my situation and even touristic doubts and the host family was always there for a chat if you are having trouble adjusting.

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.

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.
