- About us
The Peru Health Promotion Challenge takes place in traditional Peruvian community in the Sacred Valley, where your help can make a real difference to the struggling locals. By working in these small communities you will have the opportunity to support them and improve overall health in the area.
You can also see the impact of our charity, the FutureSense Foundation, in the area. This volunteering project is truly unique and will test your ability to communicate and achieve goals as part of a team. You will see a different side of Peru whilst on this challenge, and make the most of your time in country.
