Program overview

Love Volunteers’ along with our partner in Peru urgently need volunteers for the many programs in Cusco and surrounding areas. We offer the chance to teach, work with children in orphanages and community centres, undertake medical placements, and support women’s groups, as well as a number of other programs. The efforts of our volunteers have been seen to drastically improve the lives of people in the local communities.

Volunteers in Peru can be sure that their skills and expertise will be put to good use. The satisfaction and fulfillment that this can give a volunteer is not something that one often gets from a job or internship. Volunteering overseas - particularly in a challenging environment - is an experience you will look back on with pride.

Through living and working in Peru volunteers can gain insight into this fascinating South American country. They will get to interact with other international volunteers, and with the community that they are serving on a day-to-day basis. It is likely that they will meet people whose experiences of life may challenge their assumptions and values. With volunteers in Peru coming from many walks of life and generations, it is often a way of forging new and lasting friendships.

Volunteering in Peru, besides being culturally stimulating, also provides an excellent opportunity to improve one’s Spanish.

Lonely Planet and Wikitravel are great resources if you need further information about the country. Also, check out the amazing photos in our Volunteer in Peru albums on Facebook and Pinterest!
