Intiwawa is an NGO supporting children in a neighbourhood affected by poverty and poor living conditions in the outskirts of Arequipa, Peru. 

 

Our projects are mainly educational and health-related, and include:

- Help with homework

- English and computer classes

- Classes on different cultures, values, rights and responsibilities

- Provision of toothbrushes and dental check-ups

- Provision of hot, healthy meals

- Weekend projects, which include photography classes and movie nights. 

 

We are also currently trying to set up a weekly health clinic for the community. 

 

It is free to volunteer with Intiwawa and, although we can't offer you free housing, we can offer you low accommodation costs and a wonderful experience with a fantastic group of children, aged from 3 - 18 years old. 

 

Right now, we are looking for the following:

 

- Volunteers to take part in the activities listed above (3 month commitment usually preferred).

- A new volunteer coordinator, to start at the end of June 2013 (Long-term commitment).

- Medical professionals, to help us to broaden our health services and create a drop-in health clinic. 

 

We are always open to new project ideas and welcome volunteers with enthusiasm, motivation and energy! 

 

¡Tenemos fe, valor y entusiasmo!
