It's a unique possibility to get to know the reality in Venezuela far from the main tourist spots! Benposta is a non-profit-organization that enables kids living in a family-like environment where they are educated in various aspects of life (social, school, artistically, etc.). The idea is a model-like society independent from race, sex, faith, social and national background.
I am Peter and help to manage and coordinate the volunteers for Benposta Venezuela. Volunteers are welcomed and usually picked up from the airport in Caracas or Maracaibo and brought to the various projects that are quite remote and not connected with public transport. During they stay volunteers can bring in their talents and knowledge in different areas for the organization and get in return food and accomodation.
