Proyecto Peru Centre
Proyecto Peru Centre is a local organization from Cusco Peru. Proyecto Peru specializes in organizing volunteer work, internships, Spanish lessons and accommodation.
For volunteer work, we offer different projects in order to help poor people in and around Cusco: projects with street children, kindergartens, undernourished children, public schools, health centers, orphanages and a home for elderly people. The activities the volunteer can develop are as follows: teaching pedagogical activities, sports, English, manual crafts, arts, organizing outdoor activities, giving support or playing with the children. But you can also help a nonprofit organization with their marketing, communications, website or organization.
All the organizations we work with are non-profit organizations, social projects and public institutions like medical clinics and public schools and kindergartens. Please send us your preference and interests and we would like to receive your CV, so we can place you in a project that suits you.
Costs & Benefits
The activities done during the volunteer work depend on the project. You can for example teach, organize activities, do social work or help organizations with fundraising, marketing, communications, organization or their website. And you can work in a medical clinic if you have a medical background.
There are possibilities for full-time volunteering, but also many projects are for half a day. All the volunteering options are in and around Cusco.
Proyecto Peru doesn’t charge any fees for the coordination of the volunteer work. However, taking at least 1 week of Spanish classes and staying in one of our accommodations is a requisite. Concerning the accommodation you can stay in a host family or apartment. Staying with a host family will give you a real cultural experience, you will be immersed in the style of living in a local way and you will share all meals with the family. Staying with a host family will cost about $ 132 per week.
Proyecto Peru offers volunteer work in different social projects, organizations, NGO’s and public institutions. The Spanish level that is required depends on the volunteer project. We offer projects starting from a basic Spanish level. Proyecto Peru has an accredited Spanish school to take a Spanish course for the volunteer work. You can volunteer starting from 17 years old.
