La Comunidad Que Construimos is an official Peruvian NGO that helps disadvantaged kids develop their self-esteem through educational workshops in English, art and cultural exchange in local schools.
We are a non-profit organization that provides poor local state schools with volunteer English teachers, so schoolkids receive the education they deserve, in line with the national curriculum. Our volunteers teach English classes and run educational, art and P.E. workshops centered around self-esteem and personal development, so these kids are prepared to be makers of their own future.
Our vision is to provide both children and their families with the tools they need to develop their skill set so that they can create their own future and end the cycle of poverty that currently resides in Trujillo.
We work closely with headteachers and primary school teachers and we assist the teaching team in developing the best learning techniques. We also offer kids the opportunity to take part in an after-school program for homework support and a skating program in collaboration with our non-profit partner Concrete Jungle Foundation.
