Practical information

Strengths

  • Help make Cusqueñian children lives healthier by engaging them in sporting activities
  • Benefit enormously from learning their culture, their history and their knowledge
  • Discover Peru and its wonders

Program description

Help Cusqueñian children enrich their lives with your friendliness, warmth and culture. Bring your knowledge and the various skills you have, and in return we guarantee you one of the most satisfying experiences in your life. You will be volunteering and helping the local people, and especially underprivileged kids, through different workshops and activities (this can go from teaching English and writing, leading them through the arts of painting to performing, music, and more).

 

You can also help make their lives healthier by engaging them in sporting activities. The rewards go both ways, as you will also benefit enormously from learning their culture, their history and their knowledge. This is a unique opportunity for you, to fill a critical gap in education and community development in Cusco, Peru.

 

All Volunteering projects start on a Monday, so volunteers should plan to arrive to Cusco on Friday, as they have a Welcome Package at Milhouse Hostel which includeds 3 nights accommodation. This is a great introduction to Cusco, and the Scared Valley, as well as the perfect way to start your volunteering project!
