About the workproject

We need 5 volunteers

Nuluka Foundation ( is an Australian NFP organisation that provides disadvantaged youth in rural Colombia access to bilingual education to help them gain skills in life with the aim of relieving poverty.
we are looking for volunteers teachers who want to have a great cultural experience and learn some Spanish along the way.

The program relies on sending volunteers to Colombia to teach English. starting in 2012 when the first Australian volunteer went over. The goal is to develop and grow the program further in Colombia and Latin America.

We have 3 Australian Volunteers working in Colombia at the moment (one of them for 3 years) so you will have the opportunity to discuss with them about their experiences.

Hi guys, I'm a (dual citizen Australian-Colombian) Lawyer the founder of Nuluka, I used to work in a multinational insurance company in Sydney but I've decided to quit my job to dedicate my full time commitment to Nuluka in order to help improve the lifes of underprivileged kids in LATAM, particularly in Colombia providing bilingual education.

We've have been teaching English to underprivileged kids in 13 rural schools since 2012, there has been more than 450 students between the age of 5 to 16 years old who has been benefit for our programs.

We would love to cover more schools but in order to do so we need more volunteers so if you think you are fun,friendly and love work with talented and joyful kids from disadvantaged communities, we would love to hear from you.
