We are a small Spanish school that is dedicated to the promotion of education, languages and the environment caring in Arequipa, the second most important city in southern Peru. This association was founded by myself after traveling a bit in Europe, doing volunteering, and before living for some months in Cusco getting many kind of spiritual and trip knowledges. The main project of the association is the Spanish school who works in a rented house to 15 minutes from the city center. My mother and me live in a small house that is 25 minutes from the center of the city in a quiet and safe district. We also work with small volunteer programs (children house, English workshops), promoting the Spanish school and making didactic material for the lessons and for children.
