I have been involved with Robin Hood since 2007 when I volunteered to help teach English to the children in Mancora. I found it to be a fantastic and extremely rewarding way of giving back to those underprivileged yet very smart and hard working kids. Year after year, Robin Hood achieves what it sets out to do. The provision of good after school activities also helps to focus their minds on learning and keep them off the streets. The children and their parents are very appreciative of all the volunteers and they make us proud.

I had the opportunity to volunteer with Robin Hood in 2009. The activities encouraged not only physical activity and wellness, but teamwork and critical thinking. The program offers these kids a wonderful opportunity to grow, become more confident and reach their goals. It was such a pleasure to be a volunteer alongside the dedicated staff, and was a fantastic experience!

Robin Hood is a fantastic program for the children of Mancora. The staff and volunteers are loving and dedicated, and committed to the well-being of the entire community. The children who participate thoroughly enjoy themselves while learning important life skills and understanding the importance of giving back to their community. I was proud to have volunteered in the program and hope to be able to do so again in the future.

Hi! I have been helping Robin Hood Project as a volunteer for the past few months and after seeing how this is really changing the life of some children in Mancora I feel I can never do enough. It is an honour to be part of this project and contributing to the efforts and the great job that people are putting into it. Any little help goes directly to the school so that kids can grow up as strong and independent adults.
It is a must to remember that Education is the first step for freedom, thank you Magda for making this possible.

Having spent some time with the kids in Robin hood mainly with play activities, There is a sense of joy about this place. The children are wonderful and their teachers dedicated to their welfare.
The CEO is a hands on leader taking responsibility in all fields.
This is a wonderful organization which is doing so much to enhance the lives of the children of Mancora who without it may well have slipped trough the cracks and received no such schooling. If you have time to volunteer when in Northern Peru, this is the place. The work may be taxing but the smiles of 50 kids is worth every moment.

I have been helping Robin Hood Project for the past 6 months in quality of volunteer and UK ambassador. I am impressed by the noble cause, the drive of the CEO and how this drive translated in concrete results which improved the quality of life of many children in Mancora, Peru'.
The organization is supported by many capable and determined professionals. The peculiarity of Robin Hood Project is also to offer to children free dental work that in regions such as rural Peru are opportunities difficult to find.
