Be part of creating a positive impact and fostering a community where children feel bright, capable and worthy!

Consider your impact: Volunteering abroad can be a rewarding experience for both volunteers and local communities, and at Go Overseas, we believe all volunteers should have the resources to make informed decisions about the type of volunteer project they want to partake in. However, despite best intentions, some organizations offering placements in orphanages may unknowingly place children in danger. You can read about the potential dangers of orphanage volunteering here.

I highly recommend Superlearner!

My time with Superleaner has been an incredibly transformative experience. I have been volunteering with Superlearner since November 2019. I began as a teacher and later was a project coordinator for our school improvement project. Supporting the families and our students in reaching their goals has been the most meaningful aspect of being a volunteer. I continue to return to Peru because of the care I have developed for the families in the community. I remember my first day in the community in November 2019, when I met a 1-year-old boy in his mother’s arms who lived next to the school. Over my four years of support, I have seen our students grow, develop their confidence, and expand their goals beyond what they initially thought possible. Being a part of a collective effort to uplift the Pamplona Alta community with amazing volunteers and partner organizations has been an incredible and inspiring experience. I am very proud of the community garden we recently built and our improvements to the school. The students get very excited meeting new volunteers, so if you love teaching children and being creative and resourceful, Superlearner is the perfect organization for you! :)

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
Enjoy the little moments! Praise the children for their achievement! And remember, kids will be kids; they have bundles of energy, so have patience. Being creative when teaching students new material is the key to success. Also, please get to know their families! :)
Pros
  • Amazing group of volunteers
  • Cultural exchange
  • Community empowerment

Helping kids in Pamplona

I have been participating in this program once a week for the past year I have lived in Lima. I use to teach the English class to the little ones every Tuesday . The kids were very nice and very polite despite the difficult condition of the area where they grow up.
Helping with SUPERLEARNER will give you the opportunity to act in a concrete way to support the families of this poor district of Lima. You can help for a few days or a few month according to your plans, so do not hesitate to get in touch with the office of SUPERLEARNER !

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
Anticipate with the public transportation as taking the bus in Lima can be challenging !
Do not wear nice and white shoes to go to Pamplona ! They will get dirty and muddy !
Pros
  • Really nice families and kids
  • Meeting other volunteers from all over the world
  • Concrete help to the kids
Cons
  • Public transport to go to Pamplona

Amazing journey to

I love Superlearner in so many ways. I personally was feeling a little lost before crazy with work. Finding this program helped me reconnect with myself from what an amazing experience it is to share and learn so much from this family of volunteers to rediscover how little moments and reactions can fill your day. This is an incredible program to learn about the Peruvian reality while sharing knowledge. I recommend joining this incredible journey and enjoy starting to write new stories with the community.

What was your funniest moment?
One day I taught classes with a chicken assistant
Pros
  • The program focuses on an outlying community located on the periphery of the city
  • You will always learn something new that you never expected.
  • Meet new people with many incredible perspectives.
Cons
  • Lack of infrastructure
  • Can be far but its easy to get there
