Volunteers will work closely with healthcare workers in several clinics around the beautiful city of Cusco. Healthcare professionals will assist with various medical tasks based on experience and certification. The primary task for students is shadowing healthcare workers through observation.
Volunteers care for children in daycares, after-school centers, and child care centers. Other volunteer opportunities include assisting teachers in state schools and providing support at women’s shelters and schools for children with physical and developmental disabilities.
Volunteers have the opportunity to work at an animal sanctuary that provides shelter for animals that have endured trauma during their lives or at a local dog rescue center.
