  • Description


    This is a nonprofit special need 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 better life quality and to support the children's families, who often show social and/or economic problems, too. To realize this dream, we provide teachers, physiotherapists and language therapists to the children. Therefore we can help them to improve.
    Besides, we are searching for solutions to solve some social, economic and ecological problems. That´s why we are planning to create a sustainable nature project. In strengthen gardening at the school and sensitizing the children's families to give them an option to live more sustainable and independent, we hope for a positive influence on society.
    Our vision is to raise a sensible, healthy and thoughtful generation with values of respect and supporting each other and the surrounding nature.

    ### From the beginning of January to the end of February we search volunteers for gardening and general maintenance.

    ### From March to December we search volunteers like described below:
    (For the work with kids please prepare a CV in Spanish.)

    Especially we appreciate every professional, like physiotherapists, psychologists, 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 to some agricultural work and with our animals in the countryside. If you have special knowledge, which could help us realize our vision of a sustainable and healthy life 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 specialized for one part of our association or the whole one.
