DSC_1264.jpg

Honofre Benavides School is a public primary and secondary school, located in Tomepampa, a rural village in the Cotahuasi Canyon region of Southern Peru. Our volunteers support students’ education and provide cross-cultural exposure to children at the school. This is a fantastic opportunity to gain teaching experience in a completely different cultural setting and to live in a little-visited yet fascinating area of Peru!
