  • Description


    We are located in Chincha, Peru, around 200 km south from Lima at the Peruvian coast. We serve breakfast and lunch for the children of families who are in need in the local community. Our mission is to provide nutrition to the bodies and souls of these kids. Currently we have around 130 children coming here every day. In the mornings and afternoons our international volunteers offer workshops, homework help and extra classes in Math, English and Reading for the kids.

    Come and get to know our community and join our team for a truly rewarding experience!

    Please keep in mind that we require a basic level of Spanish in order to be able to communicate with the children and minimum stay of 3-4 months.
