Trip Summary

One of the Peru volunteer opportunities available to you, is this massively rewarding project that involves helping wash, feed and look after children with mental and physical disabilities, and, if you wish, getting involved in their lessons. Great whether you have care experience or just want to make them smile.

This is one of our most rewarding and popular social projects in South America, spend time working with physically and mentally disabled children and help them strive to shape a better life for themselves and for their future.

Trip Info

There is no set itinerary; your own individual schedule will be drawn up for you when you are at the project. It'll be based upon the school’s particular needs together with your preferences.

You will normally be required on weekday afternoons, as children attend school each morning, though you can choose to help during lessons. There will be a minimum hour commitment, though any extra time you feel able to give will be highly appreciated.  If you would like to work in the mornings as well then help is needed teaching basic maths, Spanish, speech, and games.

Volunteers are more than welcome to bring any additional ideas or skills and incorporate these into the lessons.

Help is usually needed in the infirmary, where responsibilities will include: washing, dressing, feeding, and playing with children. Professionals trained in physical therapy and speech therapy assist in the more specialist areas.

To help you get the most out of your Peru volunteering experience, you’ll receive 10 hours of Spanish language lessons depending on your level of Spanish at the beginning of the programme. During your orientation at the beginning of your programme, you’ll be asked to take a written and spoken test with the local coordinators so that they can grade your level of Spanish. If you have less than an intermediate level of Spanish, then you will be given five two-hour language lessons during your first week at the programme, either in the morning or afternoon to fit in with your volunteer project. This is a great way to really help you with your language skills and allow you to make the most of your time away and your volunteer experience in Peru.

For those who are already of an intermediate or higher level of Spanish, you won’t be required to participate in the language lessons. Instead you will be able to spend the additional time during your first week at your volunteer project. 

 

Accommodation & Meals

Our volunteer apartment is around five minutes walk from the language school and many volunteer projects. Living here gives you an opportunity to live independently and come and go from the project as you wish.

You will be allocated a shared room, however, you can request a private room for an additional cost if you’d like – you will always share a bathroom, kitchen and living room with other volunteers.

Please note there is a $50 damage deposit on the apartment

Please note that meals are not included during your stay in the apartment. Many volunteers take it in turns to cook meals or simply eat in restaurants, which is very cheap by Western standards. The bargain hunters amongst volunteers can find a two course meal for as little as 30p in Cusco, with a drink included! You will be given a key for the apartment so you can come and go as you please.

Eligibility & FAQ's

Minimum age 18, maximum decided on health and fitness of participant.

There are no minimum numbers on the trip.

 

Do I Need Experience To Work With The Children?

No previous experience is required, however you must have the ability to be pro active to help the children (and an enthusiastic and friendly character is a must!).

Do I Need To Speak Spanish?

It would help if you could speak Spanish as you will be able to communicate with the children so if you have time we suggest doing our language school first. If you do not have time, then don't worry as the centre will be more than happy with the extra help.

Can I Travel Around At The Weekend?

You are free to roam at the weekends! There is plenty to do, your coordinator will be able to offer you the best advice.

Can I Go With My Friend?

Yes, as long as you give us plenty of notice that you are travelling with a friend, we can make sure you are in the same accommodation.

Can I Take Supplies With Me To Give To The Class?

Yes, the project would be most grateful. If you're not sure what to bring, then we can tell you what is needed at that time.
