About Peru

Even though Peru has a booming tourism industry and has made great progress in recent years, it still faces significant social and economic challenges. Many communities live below the poverty line and struggle to access quality healthcare, education and income generation opportunities, which is why we need your help to make a change.

We work in the Sacred Valley, in and around the town of Urubamba. Here you won’t be far from UNESCO World Heritage city Cusco and you’ll be surrounded by the stunning Andes mountain range and rich Quechua culture! We work alongside the community on a range of development programs that focus on Education & Child Welfare, Health & Wellbeing and Livelihoods & Income Generation. Our in-country team forms strong relationships with community members to ensure that our programs are meeting current needs and volunteers like you can make a long-term, positive impact.

By joining one of our Challenges in Peru, you’ll have the opportunity to experience the natural beauty of the Amazon and trek to Machu Picchu, all while supporting the local community in the adventure of a lifetime!
