We have been active for
years since we were founded in 2018
Over these years, about
volunteers have helped us make an impact.
We worked with
teachers in Jaén and San Ignacio in 5 years. Most joining for multiple years!
And we finally about
students were helped by those teachers.
Who do we work with?
We work with over 50 English teachers from over a dozen schools in Jaén and San Ignacio provinces in the northern rural parts of Peru who teach students between the ages of 10-18. Many teachers have worked with us for 2, 3 or 4 years.
Why do we work with Teachers
Teach the Teachers is committed to making a sustainable and long-lasting impact. If we work with the students directly, we can only help 40–50 students every year. If we help just 1 teacher, they can in turn help anywhere between 1000 - 2000 students over their teaching career.

How has it impacted them?
How did it all start?
I graduated in 2018 as a Biomedical Engineer. This year, I am also the President of Humasol VZW, an engineering NGO that sends students abroad to execute developmental projects.
Since joining Humasol in 2015, I’ve been hooked on development aid! In 2016, I built a water turbine in Peru with the aid of my fellow students. That was when I first met Victor Ronald and his motivated team of teachers. In the class of Victor’s wife, who is also a teacher, I gave my first English class to a group of enthusiastic children. Recently, I returned to Peru and visited Victor’s school. The excitement of the children, the motivation of the teachers, Victor’s entrepreneurial spirit and Ana’s organizational talent – everything convinced me to start this project. I’m sure that by combining the Peruvian and the Belgian forces, our project will be a great success!

How were their experiences?
Lara (Team 2021 - 2022)
"What I liked most about this experience was being entirely immersed in a new culture and working with very enthusiastic people. They showed a lot of gratitude and taught me a lot of valuable things. It was a very enriching cultural exchange. "
"I will never forget the achievement day in San Ignacio and the songs they/we sang: it was really great being together with all these students and teachers."
