About Us

Created in 2003, SKIP is a non profit organisation helping economically disadvantaged children realise their right to an education.

We work with children, teenagers and families living in El Porvenir, a disadvantaged area on the outskirts of the city of Trujillo, located on the north coast of Peru. We promote quality education and foster the capacity of children and families to be the principal agents of change in their own lives. We work in partnership with families through holistic programmes focusing on the educational, economic, emotional and social development of each child and family.

We are always looking for enthusiastic volunteers who are willing to work hard and offer support to the inspirational community we work with. In addition to less experienced volunteers with a willigness to learn, we also have positions for teachers, social workers, youth workers, economic development monitors, psychologists, communications specialists, translators, journalists - this list is not exclusive, please feel free to contact us if you have any other special skills you would like to share!!


SKIP es una asociación británica sin fines de lucro activa en el Perú desde 2003.

La asociación está comprometida con los niños, adolescentes y sus familias, quienes pertenecen a los sectores urbano-marginales de la segunda ciudad más grande del Perú, Trujillo; donde viven en situación de riesgo y exclusión social. Impulsamos la educación de calidad para los niños de bajos recursos de El Porvenir contribuyendo en el desarrollo de las capacidades tanto de los niños como de sus familias para que sean ellos los principales agentes de cambios en sus vidas. Trabajamos en conjunto con las familias y bajo un enfoque holístico en los aspectos educativos, emocionales, económicos y sociales.
