Volunteer in childcare in Peru

Volunteer in childcare in Cusco, Peru and contribute to the development of the local population by supporting community centers in nearby villages. By working here you can join a dedicated team of volunteers working in Cusco supporting children with care and early childhood development through educational games that involve colors, basic math, music, and basic concepts.

Most children in the community center come from low-income rural families who cannot afford to leave their children anywhere else during the day. These children come from single-parent homes or where parents work too many hours to make ends meet.

In this project, you can also help with administrative tasks like fundraising, education campaigns for the parents, nutrition campaigns, and more.

Arrival to the program are most Sundays.

On arrival you are greeted by our friendly coordinators and taken to your accommodation. Next day you meet with all the volunteers and interns that came the previous days for orientation.

In orientation we cover topics like:
-Do’s and dont’s in the country

-How to get around and weekend travel

-Your projects

-Communication, SIM cards , and currency.

-Social meet ups with other participants.

There are no requirements for this program other than being able to communicate at the project and work well in teams. Volunteers must patient and cheerful and resourceful.

We encourage all of our participants in our programs to travel as much as they can during the weekends. Volunteers and interns usually travel together during the weekends. Our coordinators can assist you to make travels plans

During the weekdays volunteers and interns usually spend time together after their assignments.

Spanish classes are available at an extra cost in 20 hour blocks. Monday to Friday , 4 hours per day.
