I have worked in Robin Hood project since its very begining. I was in charge of the coordination to make the project work in the last 4 years. Robin Hood has an amazing team, all of us share the same idea, work for kids and help them improve their learning skills as well as enjoy their childhood, knowing that they live in a difficult enviroment.
Working for Robin Hood project was a pleasure and made me grow as a human being.

I have had the pleasure of seeing Robin Hood grow from a passing idea to a dynamic and active project that offers specific educational programs to targeted young people in Mancora, Peru. The amazing children in Mancora were the inspiration one woman needed, and the Robin Hood Project began.
From an educational perspective, in addition to developing the literacy and numeracy ability of the children, the project places a great emphasis on the social and emotional development of the young people. In a town like Mancora, such education is fundamental to the children in building self esteem, self image and value in the community.
Being involved in the curriculum development of the Robin Hood Project has been an amazing experience and I feel I have as much to gain from the children and they will gain from the project.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Working from the UK side, a team of ambassadors meet regularly to review, evaluate and plan for the future. Future planning is always the right ratio of challenge, possibility and reality.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

This organisation is evolving strategically and holistically. With the current CEO, Robin Hood will walk the right path.
