Bamboo has opportunities to work on a range of projects in Peru such as childcare, teaching, construction, healthcare and conservation projects. Peru boasts some of the most spectacular scenery in South America and volunteers will primarily be based in the city of Cusco, the historical capital of the Inca Empire.
Volunteers provide assistance to disadvantaged socio-economic groups within Peruvian communities, focusing primarily on orphaned children, animals, rural communities and school children.
As a volunteer in Peru you can provide love, affection, education and support to orphaned children. You will help to improve education in schools ensuring children learn and flourish. As a volunteer you can practice and teach preventative healthcare, and hygiene. Depending on your interests you can also contribute to building projects in impoverished communities, or in animal/environmental conservation projects.
