We are looking for enthusiastic volunteers to spend a minimum of 2 months teaching English to children or adults at our school in Flora Tristan, Arequipa.
Helping Overcome Obstacles Peru (HOOP Peru) is a registered NGO located in Arequipa, Peru that works with the impoverished people in the community of Flora Tristan. Flora Tristan is a shanty town located on the outskirts of the city composed of haphazard constructed shacks with a lack of basic services, such as running water.
HOOP Peru is fully committed to breaking the cycle of poverty by empowering the Flora Tristan families through enhancing their education. Our current priorities are developing the Flora Tristan community, and ensuring strategic educational programs where people of all ages can advance their education, health, self-confidence and better their quality of life. The HOOP Flora Tristan School was established in 2008 and has seen enrolment increase to over 125 students.
Our children currently participate in:
- English Classes
- Homework Help
- Art and Sports Classes
- A Scholarship Programm
While our Moms are active in:
- English Classes
- Excercise Classes
- Weekly Workshops
Both Mothers and Children have access to a Social Worker and a Psychologist.
