|Volunteer Program in
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 first hand
insight into the culture and customs of this Andean
kingdom, not only that, but you get to play a first
hand 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 life
long friends and memories that you will be bale to
tell your grandchildren about.
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 express.
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 the city.
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
• 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.

shoulders and knees. in Peru and especially in rural
schools, its not considered as appropriate to wear
revealing clothing's, belly buttons, cleavage and
low fitting jeans are defiantly not appropriate. In
schools most Peruvian women wear either a Cusqueñan
