Join Global Volunteers to help displaced children in Peru - for one to two weeks! Tragically, many impoverished children live on the streets of Lima -- abandoned, orphaned, or disabled -- and are some of the world's most desperate citizens.
But, thanks to our host partners, loving and safe "homes" give vulnerable children in Lima a chance for a fulfilling future. Global Volunteers works in partnership with public and private children's homes to offer compassionate support in a number of ways. You have a rare opportunity to offer a genuine service to "at-risk" children, while immersing yourself in a complex and colorful culture.
Labor and construction:
If you’re looking for hands-on volunteer work, there are various projects that require physical labor. Volunteers will be assigned painting, carpentry, window and light installation, gardening and general building maintenance projects.
