The founders

Hello, I’m
Gus
Vanherf

I’m 24 years old and 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 so as 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 organising 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.

Hello, I’m
Jeroen
Vancraen

I’m 24 years old and 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 organisational 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!

Hello, I’m
Robbert
Hofman

I’m 23 years old and I graduated in 2019 as an Electrical Engineer. In 2016, I participated in a project for Humasol in Jaén, Peru, and have ever since been thinking about how we can support developing countries in the most efficient manner.

Helping people has always been my main drive, and, in my case, this often went hand in hand with teaching. As a young student, I assisted my fellow peers by tutoring them after school. As I moved on to university, more opportunities for volunteering presented themselves, which I seized eagerly. I joined Sagio, a non-profit organisation that matches tutors with tutees via an online platform. Later, I participated in a developmental project for Humasol, which made me realise the possible impact of such a project in aiding communities prosper.

I highly value good education, so I hope we can improve Peru’s. I’m looking forward to a productive collaboration with our very motivated teachers.

Hear what some of them have to say!

Kato

An adventure with Teach the Teachers in Peru?
Alpaca my bags. 🦙
I had an amazing two months in Peru last summer. Learned a lot about the Peruvian culture, the people, the country, the educational system, myself and so much more.
I definitely know what I like more if I have to choose between this once-in-a-lifetime-experience or an all-in vacation in a hotel!
