About

"Sharing dreams needs volunteers for our project for volunteering with children. These children come from migrants families of areas that have been declared, by the main organisations of international development, to be in a situation of extreme poverty and need (Junin, Huancavelica, Ayacucho and Central Rainforest).

We work directly with communities of the Central Andes of Peru, where the neglect and need is great. There is virtually no presence of volunteering or state organisations providing these children with assistance, emotional, caring, educational or material support. Come and participate in this wonderful cause, by helping to improve self-esteem that has been destroyed and by assisting with education. Many of the children come from dysfunctional migrant Quechua families that suffer from neglect and domestic violence that is caused by their difficult situation and economic, social and cultural marginalisation.

We are a non-commercial volunteering alternative that focuses on participation and operating a flat organisational structure. We promote self-management within communities, as a means of organisation and development.

Come and participate as a volunteer on this project, built with our own hands and with the ambition of undertaking transparent, genuine and direct (without intermediaries) social work with the communities.
