A great little volunteer-run organisation helping children children's organisations in Peru become more independent through Education and Sustainability initiatives
This is the Deal
Are you looking for the opportunity to improve your Spanish language skills and gain hands-on experience in the field in the International Development sector? Why not volunteer with LAFF, where your skills will be put to good use and you will have the opportunity to work directly with beneficiaries, gain valuable field experience and increased awareness of International Development issues, whilst practising and improving your Spanish language fluency working in a Latin American context. After being supported into your new role through our pre-departure and in-country training, you will work in Peru as a valued member of our small team of enthusiastic and skilled professionals from around the globe, under the guidance and supervision of our International Partnerships Manager. What better way to gain valuable work experience in the field than taking on this challenging and CV-boosting professional role?
Latin American Foundation for the Future (LAFF) is a UK-registered charity supporting marginalised children and young people in Peru. We work through local partner organisations in Cusco and support activities and projects in the areas of formal education; skills and vocational training; and sustainability, including income generation, cost reduction and capacity building. We believe in creating independence and sustainability, and aim to achieve it for those we help through educating, empowering and enabling.
Cusco is a beautiful UNESCO heritage city, combining Incan ruins and colonial architecture. LAFF volunteers normally find accommodation in San Blas, which is full of cafes and markets, looking down over the red roofs of the city. Cusco is a beautiful city for volunteers to explore on weekends and the perfect place to visit Machu Picchu from.
