Volunteer Opportunities in PeruVolunteering in Peru is a travel experience different from all the rest that will prove to be engaging, exciting, and incredibly unique. Named “land of abundance”, Peru stands as a crossroad between an unimaginable history, incredible nature, and powerful mining and textile industries. Volunteering opportunities can be found in both urban centers or rural experiences in villages or the mountains. Fields of activity range from education, particularly teaching English, to agriculture and wildlife conservation.
Volunteer Abroad with Local Non-Profits
Oye LENA is an educational project located in Curahuasi, in the heart of the Andes mountain range at an altitude of 2,600 metres. It was founded on 15 April 2012 and has been an officially registered NGO in Peru since 8 February 2013.Oye LENA is short for “Oye Loquitas EN Acción!”, which freely translated means: “Listen up, we are taking action!”We believe that every child has the right to qualitative education, focussed on personality development, regardless of their own capabilities and limitations and regardless of the place and culture in which they grow up. Children from underprivileged families and ethnic minorities, children with a disability and children in rural areas should have the same opportunities as others.5 Reviews
