Peru is world-renowned for its natural beauty, biodiversity and historical heritage, yet off the beaten tourist track live communities struggling to keep the balance between past traditions and modern realities.
We help out with childcare, cooking, construction and building maintenance projects. We teach English and build confidence and skills in children by playing games and leading arts and crafts activities. Our support gets projects off the ground and invests in the dreams of local leaders. Most importantly, we have the chance to explore in greater depth the culture of the local communities and learn from them in ways we never knew imaginable.
Our stay in Peru would not be complete without a visit to the majestic high Andes. Often the highlight of our stay, we embark on breathtaking hikes and get a glimpse into rural Peruvian life. These small and tranquil villages transport us back in time, away from many modern conveniences where locals show us how they live off the land.
