Project Description: Buen Pastor is an orphanage that houses thirty girls from ages twelve to seventeen. Most were abandoned by their parents due to an inability to care for them while others were rescued from abuse or a life on the streets. During their stay in the orphanage, the children go through four phases:

1. Adaptation

2. Development

3. Integration

4. Preparation for a new family

The project helps prepare these children for a return to a member of the family (aunt, uncle or grandparent), or a transfer to another orphanage in Cusco with a “Family Approach”. These next step orphanages are run by foster-mothers who attempt to provide an alternate family atmosphere for the children who have not yet be adopted.

 

Volunteer Responsibilities: The orphanage has a program in which the girls can learn weaving, sewing, painting and pottery making. If interested, you can work in these workshops. Homework help, music classes, drawing lessons and theater are all other projects in which you can become involved. Volunteers in the past have also enjoyed creating a special class to teach the children their own language. Although not required, it is very useful to have already some experience with children.
