TEACHING ENGLISH OR SPORTS IN TRUJILLO, PERU.

  • Marker details
  • DescriptionWe are a new organisation that helps to our community. We recognise that English is very important for an ever globalized and competitive world, hence we have developed this project in order to aid learning. Speaking English in Peru is very important due to the good job opportunities it can provie to those who can communicate effectively in the language. However, many people cannot afford to study another language, especially children. Therefore, our Teaching English programme is very important, as it works along side the the curriculum in local schools giving students who would not normally be able to study English . The children at the heart of our project com from low income families, with many being the victims of neglect, physical and/or mental abuse. Unfortunately, it is the case that they are not currently helped by any other agency or private or public institutions. Social welfare provisions in Peru are limited.
    We are also collaborating with an exotic animal kennel. As you may imagine animal welfare isn't a priority here in the city and the situation is which these poor animals live is dramatic.
