More about Us

We are a private, non-profit Peruvian organization dedicated to connecting volunteers to those in need in order to help them overcome challenges and develop meaningful relationships. We are working in the most beautiful place in the world, the Amazon - trying to save this paradise and conserve its cultures and biodiversity. We offer transformational experiences: service-learning programs, permaculture courses, volunteering opportunities, and unusual trips for those who don't want to just visit a place but want to really understand it and contribute to positively changing our global society. Our home base is Oxapampa in the "Selva Central" (the region of rainforest across the Pasco, Huanuco and Junin Departments) and we work all across the Biosphere Reserve Oxapampa-Ashaninka-Yanesha, one of the places with the highest biodiversity in the world. Our mission is simple: to help those in need by participating in the sustainable development and conservation of the Peruvian rainforest and its populations while providing to students from the Western world a life-changing service-learning experience and deliver them the tools to really understand the connections between our non-sustainable lifestyle and human insecurity, poverty, environmental degradation, loss of biodiversity and climate change. We believe that our vision can and will be realized. We want to create a new generation of enlightened and mindful leaders that will change our society. Easy!

What are you waiting for?

We at 7Elements Peru would love to hear from you!
