Aprendo Contigo

Aprendo Contigo (Learning with You) is an educational and recreational based program. Aprendo Contigo is helping children with life-threatening diseases to continue with as much normality as possible in a hospital environment. The small patients can attend classes and develop physically, emotionally and intellectually while being confined to a hospital bed or as a walk-in patient undergoing treatment.

The main goal of Aprendo Contigo is to create an environment of normality for the patient during hospitalization or treatment. The children continue to have access to an appropriate lesson plan and learning material. In addition Aprendo Contigo promotes the creative development through various handcrafts, workshops and hobbies. For this reason the small patients don't lose the contact to the outside world and don't see their illness as the central part of their lives.

Since the year 2000 Aprendo Contigo works at the Cancer Institute (INEN), since January 2006 at the Center for Orthopedic and Neurological Deseases (Hogar Clínica San Juan de Dios) and since February 2009 at the Children Hospital of Lima (INSN). In December 2010 the work at the shelter for HIV positive children Posadita del Buen Pastor was ended. After almost 8 years the children are now prepared to attend regular schools. This has been the main goal in this specific location.

Aprendo Contigo is a member of the National Charter of Volunteers of Peru (CENAVOL).
