Responsible tourism: Peru volunteering vacation, Peruvian adventure
Wildlife: By exposing our volunteers to the beauty and serenity of the Andes we hope to enlighten and educate our volunteers on the importance of environmental conservation. Volunteers will also visit an animal sanctuary in Cusco and learn about local conservation efforts.
Building: We build sustainable greenhouses with a goal of providing each house in each village a sustainable and nutritious source of food. We will also be building playgrounds providing local children with something that physically challenges them, mentally stimulates them, and is a source of great fun! The greenhouses and play equipment uses all locally-sourced and environmentally sustainable products that can be repaired and replaced by local villagers.
Suppliers: All building materials, skilled and unskilled labour, food, accommodation and transport is sourced from local villagers and suppliers. We aim to boost local economy and industry through our programs and provide an ongoing source of income and employment for future generations.
Our organisation provides safe and fulfilling opportunities for you to work with village communities and bring real and lasting change to the lives of many.
Volunteers undertake hands on work delivering valuable infrastructure in the areas of education, sanitation and water supply for the benefit of these communities.
Participation in our programs delivers a range of benefits to all participants. The villagers benefit from the new and refurbished infrastructure, the learning opportunities and the friendship and interactions with the volunteers. The volunteers take away a special sense of fulfillment in having made a contribution and a real difference to the lives of others.
In addition our volunteers often make lifelong friendships while involved in experiences that are invaluable in clarifying and assisting in future career goals.
Whenever possible we use local guides, labor and translators so as to add back to the community. We purchase all food and building supplies locally and as much as possible we use environmentally friendly materials.
We endeavour at all times to ensure that we work in as safe an environment as can possibly be arranged. All program venues and equipment are continually monitored to make sure that the highest possible levels of health and safety are met.
