VOLUNTEER IN PERU

There are those who are content with letting their feet dangle at the water’s edge; and there are those who like to dive right in! For the free spirited, Cusco is a full pike somersault twist into a living indigenous culture with traditions that run five centuries deep.

Trek to the mind-boggling Lost City of the Incas -- a labryinth-like setting believed to have served as an indulgent retreat for Inca royalty. The hip-hop mogul mansions on MTV Cribs have nothing on Machu Picchu’s 200 room stately grounds. Its stunning landscape captivates and takes your breath away. Cascading terraces, hidden passageways, and tranquil fountains meticulously constructed along a narrow fault line are worthy of top billing in Architectural Digest.

Do a little people watching at the city’s bustling nerve-center, Plaza de Armas, and while you’re there, treat yourself to a savory dining experience. How about some cuy (guinea pig) or anticuchos de corazon (beef heart)? Tastebuds are tantalized with a fusion of exotic delicacies as traditional Peruvian dishes have melded with unlikely Italian, Thai, Vietnamese, and other cultural cuisines to produce flavorful blends.

In many ways Peru is rich beyond belief -- a royal past mixed with a rich cultural heritage, and age-old traditions, a stark contrast to the abject poverty that many Peruvians live in.

Get up close and personal and experience the real Peru. Volunteer with one of our many projects aimed at improving the quality of life for Peru’s most marginalized groups.
