Meet the team – Señorita Edyluz in Perú

Employed by Phoenix, our inspiring local teacher Edyluz has been teaching our children and also supporting, encouraging, coaching and enthusing volunteers in Maldonado since March 2007. When not working she enjoys eating her favourite food chicharrones (fried pork, similar to pork scratching) and spending time with her nine year old son Rodrigo. The thing she has enjoyed most about working with GVI Phoenix in Maldonado is the enthusiasm and happiness that the volunteers bring to the school and the children. In the future she hopes to see the school grow, both in the level of education that we’re giving and the number of pupils on role, and to see the children that we have supported grow up to do great things and have success in careers such as healthcare and teaching. Volunteers enrolling on the teaching part of our Phoenix Peru programme may well find themselves under the guidance of this amazing lady.

She truly is an amazing woman and has so much time & love for the children, but to see just how amazing she is, give her an Arequepena & let her loose on the dancefloor at la Cecilias!!!! Carla x

How does GVI Phoenix make a difference?
