How did it all start?
OUR PREVIOUS VOLUNTEERS
How were their experiences?
How has it impacted them?
I graduated in 2018 as a Software Engineer. While I’m currently working at Hewlett Packard Enterprises for Pointnext, I’m always on the lookout for new meaningful projects to take on to add value to my experience as well as that of others.
My love for volunteering started when I was a leader in the Scouts. In college, I joined the student union ‘Industria vzw’, during which I was the Head of Business Relations. My tasks included exploring business opportunities and organizing relevant events for my peers.
Now, I’m driven to use my skills to aid teachers by providing the support they need in transferring their knowledge to their students.
BENJAMIN (Team 2020)
I am Benjamin. I am an educational master student in behavioural sciences at the KU Leuven. Last year I participated in this project as a teacher, and it was an unforgettable experience. The gratefulness you get from the Peruvian Teachers and the impact you have on their didactic methods are huge. Last year really convinced me that this project is one that should last because it has a big influence on a lot of lives. Not only the lives of the Peruvian teachers and Belgian students but also of the students in Peru.
I live in Chirinos and I work at ‘Jose Maria Arguedas’ high school. I teach to kids with ages between 12 and 16 years old. This is my 8th year teaching. I am really happy and excited with this project because I want to improve my communicative skills for help my students to improve too.
I teach at Tito Cusi Yupanqui high school – San Ignacio, my students are between 15 and 16 years old, so I’m working here aprox 8 years; I’m proud to be part of this great project, finally, I wanna improve my strategies, skills and English level.
