CHARITY TEACHING PROJECTS
We recognise that English competency is a requirement for accessing the best academic and work opportunities; it is a worldwide communication tool, and we appreciate the value of interculturality in the language learning process.
Our belief in social responsibility has motivated us to expand our teaching model by reaching out to public schools which lack the material and human resources required to achieve quality English language teaching. The aim is to offer pupils from underprivileged backgrounds, access to learning English with a communicative methodology. We look forward to expanding our impact in schools such as these.
The Pamplona Project
Wednesdays from 3 pm to 4:30 pm
“Hello English” programme in Colegio Ollantay, Pamplona Alta, San Juan de Miraflores.
It first opened its doors in 2013 in the local police station and subsequently relocated to Colegio Ollantay earlier this year. The classes are targeted at children between the ages of 7 and 10, divided into two classrooms. It is immensely satisfying to watch the pupils’ growth over the course of the year and see how eventually they are able to understand basic expressions and vocabulary in English.
Tupac Amaru School
Tuesdays from 3 pm to 4:30 pm
Youth Enrichment and English Learning programme in Colegio Tupac Amaru, Villa María del Triunfo.
In addition to learning the language, this initiative seeks to develop social responsibility and awareness of pertinent social issues through a series of sessions that motivates high school students to develop their critical thinking in topics such as drug abuse, alcohol, bullying, and personal identity whilst they learn English too.
Partnership with Change Live Grow Foundation
We are trustees of the “Change, Live, Grow Foundation”
Created by former VTP volunteers to provide economic support for community projects that aim to improve the quality of life of children living in extreme poverty in Lima. The foundation has raised money for the construction of a community centre in
AAHH Vista Hermosa in the district of San Juan Miraflores. These funds were achieved through fundraising in British universities; endeavours range from selling Peruvian souvenirs to running sponsored marathons.
