Depending on location volunteers are provided a humble living stipend of approximately 200 Peruvian soles per month, to enable the purchase of food. 


Teachers will be provided school lunches provided in the cafeteria. These are balanced meals often based on rice, with vegetables, meat, a fruit as a snack and a drink (sweet tea or natural juice)-


English teachers will learn about:

  • teaching in impoverished areas
  • how to successfully teach in children with difficult home situations
  • how sustainable development works and its challenges
