This is a Peruvian volunteer program for the young and adventurous. You will volunteer high up in the Andes mountains, just a short bus ride away from the colorful and vibrant city of Cusco.

Hidden amongst the mountains are remote villages where volunteers work alongside village families to build greenhouses that allow the villagers to extend the short growing season to increase the amount and variety of food they produce each year. Volunteers can also spend one night living with the family for whom they are building the greenhouse. You will also learn to salsa dance, cook traditional meals

Your second week is an adventure week which includes a trip to the breath taking Machu Picchu. You will bike ride for a day through beautiful mountains to an Inca ruin site, the ‘Moray Ruins’, unknown to most tourists. If you are lucky you may even see the giant Condors circling overhead.

You will trek to the Peruvian salt mines, the ‘Salineras’ of the Sacred Valley, a site and experience you will never forget! You will visit natural hot springs, zipline across valleys, jungles and rivers and experience white water rafting as well as taking a sunset trek to Machu Picchu.

The program is unlike any other. It incorporates the true objective of volunteering peppered with a whole lot of laughter, fun, teamwork and building strong relationships between what used to be strangers, into becoming solid friends that shared the great opportunity of lending a hand (or many hands!) to making a difference.

Quote I feel that the community of Misminay will greatly benefit from the three Greenhouses we built. This community can now grow many different types of vegetables to add greater nutrition to their daily meals and instead of having to walk great distances and barter for their veggies they can now support themselves. Madison Wright 2014.

Volunteer abroad for longer by adding an extension

The program lasts 14 days, but it doesn't have to end there... Volunteer abroad again; adding one of these voluntering opportunities as an extension means you will be able to stay longer and achieve so much more, or enjoy another program, for much less than the cost of joining two separate programs.

Depending on the extension you choose, you can save around $500 / £325.
