Challenge Snapshot

Duration: 15 Days (21 with extension)
Location: Peru
Total Cost: $2,050 ($2,850 with extension)



Despite the sheer beauty of the Sacred Valley and it’s awe-inspiring mountain backdrop, many communities in the area face a range of social and economic issues. On this Challenge you will spend two weeks working on a variety of projects aimed at improving education quality in the region to provide local children and their families a brighter future.


Your Impact

Working in one of our partner schools to deliver a range of workshops that supplement the national curriculum, you could be running sessions that focus on conversational English, STEM, life skills, creative arts and sports! Our in-country team has worked closely with local partners to determine the areas in which local children’s education can be enhanced, and we encourage our volunteers to be creative and deliver fun workshops that will both engage children and allow them to learn hands-on.

You will also have the chance to work on a renovation project at one of our partner schools with the aim of creating a safer and more inspiring learning environment. You could be painting an educational mural, renovating a playground, creating a library, installing a hand-washing station and more!

Following an induction and orientation when you arrive, your project days will be Monday-Friday with the weekends free to travel and explore. We recommend heading to UNESCO World Heritage city Cusco and making a trip to the infamous Rainbow Mountain! 


Extend your trip and visit Machu Picchu!

After your Challenge you can join our optional extension trip and embark on the Salkantay trek to Machu Picchu, a truly once in a lifetime experience. On this 5-day trek you'll walk more than 70km and reach an altitude of 4600m above sea level as you make your way to South America's most famous landmark. You'll see Humantay Lake, cross Salkantay Mountain and pass through cloud forests before reaching Machu Picchu for that bucket list moment at the end of your trip!
