Volunteer with Project Peru in Peru?

We can arrange tailored volunteer placements in our project in Peru for volunteers of all ages and are looking for volunteers at any time during 2019 and beyond. We can be quite flexible, so just enquire and we can discuss it with you! There is a whole range of activities that volunteers may be engaged in, and the more varied the skills that a volunteer can offer the better. Many volunteers also raise sponsorship money for us by doing the Inca Trail. You might do  some work in our garden? or in our library? teach English? learn Spanish? art? music? sports? computers? building? sewing? help look after our children?

A fresh lick of paint

An enthusiastic team of volunteers from a major UK company working in Lima, several of whom are regular visitors to our refuge anyway, had an 'awayday' before Christmas 2018, painting new lines for our football and basketball pitches, as well as painting the goalposts, the volley-ball posts, renewing the nets, and repainting the basketball 'backboards' and the seating terraces.

One comment from the team: 'Project Peru has done so much for these young people, so we're glad to help in some way. We all enjoy being part of something positive and working with people full of enthusiasm.'

The dimensions of the whole sports pitch are 30 metres x 18 metres; this construction was originally funded and built from scratch by a team of students from the UK Universities Air Squadrons in July-August 2005, as can be seen in progress here...
