Globalteer's own children's educational project helps disadvantaged children in a small village on the outskirts of Cusco get ahead by providing them access to educational support. Volunteers work with project staff assisting with English, arts & crafts, and computing classes. You will also help out with sports & games and in the kindergarten. This is a great opportunity to get experience working with children while also practicing some Spanish skills and seeing some true Peruvian culture.
Anyone who has visited Cusco will tell you about the numbers of dogs wandering the street. Unfortunately many of the street dogs suffer from illnesses, injuries and sadly, abuse. But luckily there are some great shelters rescuing dogs to care for them! Volunteers help local shelter staff care for the dogs - feeding them, cleaning their areas, grooming them, and mostly importantly showing them lots of love & affection! Spend your days with these loving dogs in the magnificent city of Cusco!
Volunteer in the Peruvian Amazon for an unforgettable jungle experience while helping rescued wildlife. Help care for, rehabilitate and hopefully release these wonderful animals back to the wild when possible. At any time the animals at the sanctuary varies, but generally includes a variety of monkeys, birds, reptiles, mammals and the occasional sloth! Volunteers stay on sight at the sanctuary in simple bungalows for a true amazon experience!
This volunteer program allows you to help conservation efforts in the amazon as a research assistant. Experience the beauty of the Peruvian Amazon while you gain new skills and learn all about amazon conservation efforts to protect the rainforest and its wealth of species. Volunteers assist with a range of conservation tasks including forest regeneration, animal monitoring (birds, mammals, amphibians, butterflies and reptiles), bio gardening, capacity building, and agroforestry.
