    Teaching English at Horizon

    Because public education is significantly lacking here, and the majority of the community cannot afford private schooling, the members of this community have very few job opportunities. Thus, they are born into poverty and few are ever able to rise out of it. Recognizing this cycle and its causes, we decided to broaden the horizons of our friends and neighbors by offering them an education in English. With the help of volunteers, our organization is able to offer children and adults alike this useful skill for free!

Student of the Month for February 2014

I have been instructing Iris since my arrival at Horizon Peru in mid-January. I have chosen her as student of the month because of her outstanding dedication and motivation. It is very clear that Iris puts a high value on the education that she is offered at Horizon Peru, evidenced by the amount of studying and preparation that she does outside of class. All of the extra effort that Iris puts in allows for very quick advancement in class, and has lead to her rapidly increasing fluency. Iris is a terrific role model at our school whose performance and achievements could very well serve as sources of motivation for her peers. - Jeana, 2014 Horizon Peru Volunteer
