Volunteer Program in Peru
Volunteering is one of the most rewarding and heart felt things that you can
do, not only for yourself but for the people you are helping along the way.
In Peru, partaking in a volunteer program gives you a wonderful and unique
opportunity to live with and interact with a local family, gaining a
firsthand insight into the culture and customs of this Andean kingdom, not
only that, but you get to play a firsthand role in aiding small communities
in gaining an edge in education. It's often the case in rural areas that
education is under funded and poor. By volunteering in one of the many
schools we run these programs in, you are offering your teaching experience
and your ability as an English speaker to help educate not only the
children, but the teachers as well. Along your journey you will form many
lifelong friends and memories that you will be able to tell your
By donating your time and experience you are giving more than money or words
can express, you will experience the joy in the children's faces and this
will communicate to you more thanks than a thousand words could ever
Arrive in Cusco we will put you up in hotel with bed and breakfast. Your
first week will be spent taking basic Peru classes and cultural education to
prepare you for your home stay. You will also be taken sightseeing around
Placement time, we will take you to the area of your placement and introduce
you to the family you will be staying with and to the school and its
teachers. You will be given a teaching schedule.
Bid farewell to the school and your host family and return to Cusco where
you will take a 5 day program-2 days rafting and 4 days trekking in
mountains around Machupicchu maybe take route Salkantay, Lares or Inca
Trail, so you can relax after your experience and share your experiences
with other volunteers.
What to expect
• The placements will be in remote areas, you will have your own room but
the toilet will be outside and a squatter, also toilet paper may not be
supplied so you should bring your own; you will be able to purchase it from
the local store.
• You will be living with a traditional family you should respect their
culture by always dressing appropriately, not drinking or smoking unless
offered. Houses are communal places so don’t expect your room to be a
private zone; other family members will be coming in and out a lot.
• It’s not common for rural houses to have shower or bath facilities. There
will be places to wash in a river or at the local water pump. It's helpful
if you bring along a sarong for bathing in. Doesn’t worry the lady of the
house will show you how it's done? Also there will be no laundry services,
you will be shown where and how to wash your clothes.
• The schools or villages may require you to walk some distance to reach
them; you should have good basic fitness.
• The food will be simple, but you will not go Hungary. Be prepared to eat
potatoes and plenty of it. It's not common for most families to eat meat
regularly so the food is mostly vegetarian. It’s all fresh and healthy.
Water for drinking can be brought in local villages, if not we will make
sure you have a good supply. In some cases the water can be drinkable, or
you can take tablets to treat it.
• In most cases you will be able to contact us any time by phone, we will
check up on you regularly anyway, but don’t expect to find internet
The facilities may be basic and limited, but you should look upon this as an
experience of a life time, to live with and experience how other people live
and have lived for generation after generation. Not only are you offering
your services as a teacher to the students, but this is a learning
experience for you yourself.
