Do you want to experience cultural immersion in South America? Do you want to make a meaningful difference in the lives of young women? Many Peruvian girls suffer from abuse, sexual violence and discrimination, and every year hundreds of teenage girls become pregnant. However, the Peru laws are designed to punish the victims rather than protect them. Because of this and other factors such as social pressure and shame, many of these crimes go unreported. These poor girls do not receive any assistance or support, and end up struggling to support themselves and their children.
In this program, you will help the Peruvian girls by providing them with counseling, kindness and encouragement. You will provide basic education to the girls as well as teach them about reproductive health and childcare. Depending on your skills and expertise, you will teach them various skills for income generation such as baking, sewing, handicraft etc. You will teach them about running a business, marketing and finance. You will provide much needed support to the poor victimized girls and enable them to have a new direction in life. The skills you will teach them will help them come out of their tragic circumstances and be happy and successful in life. Your efforts will also boost their confidence, raise their awareness about their rights and inspire them to become independent and strong. This in turn will create a better life for their children and leave you with a fulfilling experience.
