About

When you volunteer in Peru, you'll discover a truly unique country. As you explore its ancient ruins, canopied jungles, and epic coastline, you'll understand, Peru is quite literally the stuff of legend. Once you've climbed Machu Picchu, descended into the Amazon Basin, and had every adventure in-between, you'll come to see that it's the Peruvian people that make these places so special. Peruvian culture is a melting pot, claiming Japanese, African, Chinese, and European influences, not to mention roots tracing back to the centuries-old, Pre-Columbian Incan culture. As a volunteer in Peru you'll be making a real and sustainable impact as you become immersed in a fascinating culture.

In the 1980s, the political terrorism of the Sendero Luminoso (“Shining Path”), which originated in the Andes, caused significant numbers of rural residents to seek refuge in Peru's more urban areas. Although the movement saw its end in 1993, the influx of migrants over the last several decades has resulted in a serious strain on social resources, leaving children and the elderly especially vulnerable. Volunteering in Peru, you'll work alongside and for the benefit of these people, supporting grassroots efforts to provide essential services to those in need.
