  • Description


    This is a nonprofit special needs and inclusive preschool, for children with and without disabilities in Máncora. The school’s idea is to offer children with disabilities an individual education for a better live quality and to support the childrens families, who often show social and/or economical problems, too. In order to realize this dream, we provide teachers, physiotherapists and language therapists to the children. There for we can help them to improve.
    Besides, we are searching for solutions to solve some social, economical and ecological problems. That´s why we are planing to create a sustainable nature project. In strengthen on gardening at the school and sensitizing the childrens families to give them a way to live more sustainable and independent, we hope for a positive influence on the society.
    Our vision is to raise a sensible, healthy and thoughtful generation with values of respect and supporting each other and the surrounding nature.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    In living and working here you have the oportunity to dip deeply into the language, our everyday life and way to work. English speaking people are rarely found here, so you really need to speak in spanish and of course we are happy to support you in advancing your language skills.
    Moreover we are having many celebrations you are invited to take part in. Usually there is at least one celebration each month.

    Especially we appreciate every professional, like physio therapists, psycologists, special needs education teachers and social workers. To work with our children and their families and/or to give some advice and ideas, how to advance our own work.

    If you are no professional or specialist, but you have any other experience in working with children, especially with special needs kids, we still would love to have you here supporting our work. In that case we want you to stay at least three months, so that the children can get used to you and the other way round, too.

    Besides working with our children, there is the possibility to work with the plants around the school and give support in some agricultural work and with our animals on the countryside. If you have special knowledge, which could help us realise our vision of a sustainable and healthy live consistent with nature, we would love to have you here, to exchange ideas and gain inspiration.

    In the end, there is always the opportunity to create a project and collect donations. Whether it is specialised for one part of our association or for the whole one.
