First and foremost, welcome to HOOP Peru’s new blog!
For those of you who don’t know, HOOP is a small NGO located in the beautiful city of Arequipa, Peru. We work with a deprived community called Flora Tristan on the outskirts of Arequipa.
We work with both local and international volunteers who lead and assist in our programmes depending on their skills, professional backgrounds and linguistic abilities. Our local volunteers lead programmes in psychology, social work and leadership workshops whereas our international volunteers lead our english programme, homework support, sports activities and excursions.
Every month on this blog, one of our fantastic volunteers will recount their experiences with HOOP and our inspiring students, the moments that shine, when things get tough and what they got out of the experience.
Learn about the difficulties and pleasures of managing a tiny NGO with a lot of determination, and the no holds barred experiences of our volunteers!
