Semillas Life

It is very important for us to find different ways to promote the development and progress of the less privileged communities in the Peruvian Amazon. We believe that working together with these communities in developing different skills for its people and creating new job opportunities, not only will help to reduce poverty but to reduce activities that are damaging the environment such as, logging or illegal/legal gold mining with strong contaminating chemicals. Protecting the Amazon should be a global commitment because of its incalculable biological and ecological value.

We are an NGO working for the economic and social development of the less privileged communities in the Peruvian Amazon. We focus on education, environment, ecotourism and cultural exchange. We believe that promoting the development and progress of these communities can help reducing the destruction of the Amazon. The first of a series of programs that we are working on is the English teaching program. We believe that English lessons will provide a valuable opportunity to help local people gain the skills they need to communicate with tourists and also help the younger generations to have better life opportunities.

My experience in Codo del Pozuzo with Semilla's Life was unforgettable! The students were friendly and keen to learn . Teaching and seeing their progress was very rewarding.
Codo is relaxed and friendly. I always felt safe.There are shops and restaurants and food shopping is cheap.
The house is basic but the kitchen is well-equipped and the beds are very comfortable. I loved the jungle sounds at night.
The locals who looked after us were lovely! They took us on trips to the jungle and Dora even invited us to her home for lunch. We became good friends and laughed a lot! 😁
Highly recommended!

I had such a great time here. Neyer, the host, was lovely and did so much with us, taking us fruit picking, to beautiful natural swimming pools and even showed us how to make chocolate.

The teaching days are tiring but well paced, with teaching in the morning and a long break in the middle of the day before things resume again in the afternoon.

The kids can be a handful but they are also a lot of fun, very friendly and very eager to get to know you.

There is also plenty of time to explore the little town, and I felt very safe doing so :)

The conditions are very basic, there is no hot water or basic sanitation, also during this period, due to the drought, we had a lack of water for some hours. Furthermore, teaching is very precarious at the school where we teach, students aged 12-13 are very difficult to engage and I also noticed a lack of commitment from the school to help, some of the kids go to school just to play and don't care with the classes, I think this should be taken into consideration to regulate your expectations, as it is very difficult to teach English there.

Semillas Life is an important and ambitious project in a town in the eastern part of Peru. Three days a week I taught children in school (4 classes of 3rd and 4th grades) and in the afternoon another two classes on a voluntary basis for them.
It’s important to understand that the project fee is not for your personal benefit. Chris will tell you all about the bigger plan, but for you personally that means buying your own food, water, other supplies. The house is very basic, beds, fridge and a toilet hut. The main mean of transport is the TucTuc.
You will have fun, and greet Aneas from me;)
