The project

In the southern part of Cochabamba there is a shelter for children and teenagers whose moms work in prostitution. The niños come to the center to eat three meals a day and are supported in making their home work and get psychological support. They organize all kinds of activities like soccer and board games, creative therapy and cooking classes. As a volunteer or intern you can work as an English teacher. Knowledge of English is mandatory, but you don’t need a teaching degree. Experience in teaching is preferred, but also not mandatory.

Another option is to work as an activities counselor. The organization wants to help and support the kids to process their traumas. By providing these services and activities they want the children and teenagers to have a place where they can relax and develop themselves.
