Who we are

Semillas Life

 

We are an international team working for the economic development of the less privileged communities in the Peruvian Amazon. We focus on education, environment and sustainable ecotourism. 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 programes 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.

Our explorer kids program (scouts) has the mission to encourage them a passion and respect for the natural world to help transition eager young minds into caring, socially-conscious global citizens.

Volunteers

International Support

From around the world

 

Volunteers are the soul of our project. Each volunteer not only brings new ideas of teaching, renovating, promoting or supporting us, but also through the cultural interchange, they make the local community socially and culturally richer as well as they do. Then, they take a piece of Puerto Inca and Semillas Life back in their hearts. The final idea is that volunteers spread the word around the world about the beauty of Puerto Inca.

Most of them are TEFL certificated.
