Peru Luz de Esperanza is not located in the city, It has been built in the back country, in a small village called Ahuac. Fresh air, tranquility, friendly people, families raising animals and growing vegetables will be a part of your experience with us.

As a volunteer with Peru Luz de Esperanza, you will use your individual skills and energy to make a real difference in a small community that genuinely needs your help.
Our projects are focused on helping children, families and rural communities. This is one opportunity for you to be involved where children need your help the most. Not only money can change their lifes, but also the energy of all the volunteers who want to do something for someone with a lot of care and love.We will always have room for you here, because your help is very important for the community. We have options of voluntary jobs; you can choose what you like best.
WELCOME TO THIS NEW EXPERIENCE!
PERU LUZ DE ESPERANZA is a private, non-profit organization, which was founded in December 2006 and legally established in September 2007 with the government RUC No. 2048670610
Elizabeth and Nilton are 2 persons doing different projects; we manage a small family-non-profit organization that does a lot with very little resources. That is why we need your help so bad.
The mission of Peru Luz de Esperanza is to improve the quality of life of children and their families in the suburbs of Huancayo. We do not live in cities; we know that cities have different sources of help from Government Departments, Volunteering Programs, Social Programs, etc. But this is not the case for remote villages in Peru. According to the needs of these villages, the mission of PASPLE (Programa de ayuda social Peru Luz de Esperanza) is to improve the conditions of life of rural people by using volunteers ‘abilities and talents. So, yet there is something of value to give a bit of your time to radically change the lives of these children and their families. Moreover, being a volunteer adds a lot to your personal and professional growth, immersing you in the Andean culture and giving you the opportunity to interact directly with Andean people.
Donations: As PASPLE does not have any help from the government, donations are our only way to finance our activities. Every dollar counts. If you can raise funds before you come, that will help us very much continuing our activities at the school after your stay.
Books: We have a little library. So you can to bring second-hand books in English or in Spanish as a donation. Those will be used by all the people around the school.
We have initiated computer classes. We need second-hand laptops or other computer equipment like mice and pads, keyboards, screens etc. (those could be bought locally if you prefer)
School supplies (pens, notebooks, folders, color papers, pencil sharpeners, erasers, etc.) You can carry those from home or buy here in Huancayo
Clothes for small girls or and boys, 3-7 years old, 8-16 years old.
Playing material for the school as balls, games, etc.
