Additional Information

Program Information: Kiya Survivors offers volunteers the chance to get fully immersed in local Peruvian culture and experience life within the local community here in the heart of The Sacred Valley. What better way to learn the language than live in a homestay with a local Peruvian family and work amongst native Spanish-speakers on a daily basis. We run both Individual and Group Volunteer Programmes all year round with a focus on having daily Spanish lessons as well as participating in our projects which provide vital support for children with disabilities and severe special needs, and those who have been abandoned, abused and neglected or are living in conditions of extreme poverty. This is the ideal programme for volunteers wishing to improve their Spanish language skills whilst contributing in a real and practical way to make a positive change in the lives of disadvantaged children.   
Notes/Information:

This is a unique volunteering opportunity for those wishing to study abroad with a difference. Volunteers would spend their time supporting our Rainbow Centre in the mornings, helping our therapists to provide much-needed Physio and Speech & Language Therapy within a local Special Educational Needs school, the only one of its kind in the local area. In the afternoons their time would be devoted to an intensive course of Spanish lessons to improve their own Spanish skills. We provide a homestay with a local family so Volunteers experience day to day life communicating in Spanish with their host family and our wonderful staff team at the projects. Volunteers can choose the length of their programme based on what suits their needs and requirements and those Volunteers participating in a programme of 6 weeks or longer also have the opportunity to work with our children at the Rainbow House, a children's care home where we provide a safe home for children whose families are unable or unwilling to look after them. There is also an option for Volunteers to experience life in a completely different region of Peru and visit our project The Mama Cocha Centre in the north of the country in Mancora, where we run a nursery, therapy centre and after-school care for disadvantaged children from immensely poor backgrounds.
