Mission Statement

To make positive, productive and progressive change hand in hand with and for the community in Zorritos, Tumbes, Peru.

Description

This is an exciting brand new project and organization in the making. This school, originally built for the "pueblo" of Zorritos, has fallen into ruin in the last few years. It is suffering not only a major lack of proper management, coordination, organization, etc., but also from flood and mudslide damage amongst other issues. The priority is to rebuild it's infrastructure as well as some of it's actual structure, bottoms up, utilizing international volunteers who can offer a world view of improvisation and em-betterment. Volunteers will create, plan, and teach classes and conduct activities with students and parents (and others in the community of Zorritos). These can be language and other formal academic classes but volunteers should not feel restricted to such. Instruction on matters of health, sustainability, conservation, self empowerment, and handy crafts also all go over well. Volunteers also will aid in the rebuild of the school and last but not least, contribute greatly to the organization, management, etc. of the project, itself, as it is currently in beginning and kick off phase. They will fund-raise and recruit other volunteers as well. Beyond this, the sky is the limit... There's a lot of work to be done here! It should be noted that the school itself is already licensed as an institution of education in Peru, and this is a great help and huge foot in the door already done for us. Changes to the state of registration as an NGO may be made in the future pending success. Volunteers coming immediately and serving in administrative, managerial, and coordinative posts will recieve free food and housing for now. This is subject to change in the future. Other volunteers' stay and food may be heavily discounted. Other living and food options can be decided upon by volunteers. It is not a requirement to accept what's offered for food and hospidaje. The longer you can stay the better but Peru has a 6 month limit on tourist visas and this is becoming evermore increasingly difficult to attain upon arrival and entry into Peru. Volunteer and work visas may be worked on in the future, also pending success... That's all for now! Hope to see you *LO MAS PRONTO POSIBLE*! :D
