« Today I hope that more children dream as big as they want, and that education help them to achieve their dreams » Founder of the NGO.
Volunteers give English, literature, mathematics classes (alone or with an official teacher) and they organize events inside the school to entertain the children. You can also organize activities according to your skills.
The primary classes end at 1pm. The volunteers working hours change everyday according to the children’s timetable.
Volunteers work about 20h/week.
No need to speak fluently Spanish but a minimum level is expected so you can communicate with the children.
Volunteers usually stay in an hostel located in downtown. The Foundation will help you to find a good place. The transportation to the school is either by sharing a cab or to taking a public bus.
The schools’ infrastructures are very modern and comfortable. There are located in poor neighborhoods but they provide an amazing studying environment for disadvantaged children and for the staff.
Both of them will make you a warm welcome. Everyone knows each other (the school of Cartagena welcomes 15 volunteers/year by example).
