A word from the founders
In 2006, 2 people met in Cusco and had a crazy idea. In a post-colonial world dominated by greed and egoism, they decided to create an organization that would benefit everybody involved. They, Fanny and John, got a group of single mothers together and started training them to become the very best Spanish teachers for foreigners. Without a budget, without a business plan or even a defined idea of where this would lead them, they invested all their experience, their knowledge, their hearts and their passion in this adventure and after an intense year of training and building, they were ready to conquer the world. Today FairServices is a unique, very diverse organization offering services to students, volunteers, interns, adventurers, tourists,... from all over the world. Apart from being one of the biggest of its kind, FairServices built a reputation as the organization that cares about people, that makes every experience special and that keeps on offering the highest quality and service in a very personal way. Our teachers (all single mothers that used to live on the edge of poverty) work on average 5 hours per day, earning double the minimum wage in Peru, working in a respectful environment where they are appreciated for their professionalism and where they still have enough time to raise their children on the side, in 2012, FairServices started an after school project for kids from poor to extremely poor families in Cusco where we focus on education, nutrition and health.A big portion of the earnings of FairServices goes to running this project, the grant program for promising high school kids, and specific projects that benefit the local communities. Since 2013 we are expanding our philosophy and services to the online world. Not everybody has the resources, time or interest to travel to South America to learn Spanish so we bring South America to them. Highly trained teachers that are native Spanish speakers, state of the art technology and well developed didactical materials are all the result of 10 years of growth and passion and again, we are ready to conquer the (online) world.
