Project Description: La Esperanza is a shelter for girls who were victims of physical violence and sexual abuse. The number of children and adolescents residing in the project is usually between fifteen and twenty-five. The girls are required to stay at least two months although many choose to stay longer. The project‘s main goal is to help the girls develop self confidence so they can earn their own money, live independently and care for a family of their own one day. A psychologist (the director) and teachers are in charge of this project. At times there may be social work students from Peruvian universities doing their internships in the project. Volunteers can use these opportunities to exchange ideas and gain an insight into the Peruvian social work system.

 

Volunteer Responsibilities: There are different tasks the volunteers can be involved in within the project such as helping the girls with their schoolwork, or in workshops such as drawing, painting or craft making. If you are interested, you can also work independently with a small group of girls every day.
