Volunteer in childcare in Peru and shape the future of our world by spending time with kids who will benefit from your care and teachings. INLEX works in low-income neighborhoods where resources are very limited. These projects benefit from the work of volunteers, as most of the time, they are understaffed and underfunded. The childcare program is perfect for volunteers who are energetic, full of initiative, and creative; and the work is rewarding fun, and a great experience. If you have previous experience with children or education you can help implement new strategies to keep the kids learning throughout the whole day.

Depending on the destination you choose you can choose to work in daycare centers, orphanages, or after-school programs.By volunteering here you can join a dedicated team of workingn Cusco supporting children with care and early childhood development through educational games that involve colors, basic math, music, and basic concepts.

Most children in the community center come from low-income rural families who cannot afford to leave their children anywhere else during the day. These children come from single-parent homes or where parents work too many hours to make ends meet.
