This work is in primary schools located in different towns outside of Huancayo. These rural towns are a 25 minute bus ride from the house aproximately.
The children range between 6 and 12 years old, grouped in classes base don their age.

Volunteer teachers are welcome to suggest which subjects they want to cover and which materials they would like to use. Every weekend the volunteer teachers will meet with the coordinator to plan classes and teaching resources for the week ahead.

We believe that a good understanding of English is very important for these children’s future prospects, and a functioning understanding of English affords these children many opportunities; therefore Carismaperu initiated this project with the aim to give these children a strong foundation in English from an early age, preparing them well for higher education.

This project runs from Monday to Friday between 8:30 a.m and 12: 00 p.m. Class runs from 9-10.30, there is a half-hour break for snacks and play, then a final hour of study from 11am to midday. Often our volunteers like to join in with the kids at playtime.


We are looking for:

Volunteers to work as English Teachers who are prepared to take full class responsibility. Volunteers to work as Teaching Assistants who are prepared to help the English Teachers in the classroom, assisting with materials, teaching, monitoring and general interaction.
