On this challenge you will spend two weeks volunteering on a variety of projects aimed at improving education quality in the Sacred Valley. You will be challenged to step out of your comfort zone and think creatively as you volunteer to give local children and their families a brighter future.
You will be volunteering in one of our partner schools to teach a range of workshops that supplement the national curriculum and improve education quality. You could be teaching sessions that focus on conversational English, STEM, life skills, creative arts and sports! We encourage our volunteers to be creative and deliver fun workshops that will both engage children and allow them to learn hands-on.
You will also have the chance to volunteer on a renovation project at one of our partner schools with the aim of creating a safer and more inspiring learning environment. You could be painting an educational mural, renovating a playground, creating a library, installing a hand-washing station and more!
Your volunteering days will be Monday-Friday with the weekends free to do your own travel. We recommend heading to UNESCO World Heritage city Cusco and making a trip to the infamous Rainbow Mountain! If two weeks isn't enough, we recommend going our extension trip for an extra week to take on the Salkantay trek to Machu Picchu!
There is not a better feeling than feeling like you’ve made a difference. This challenge gave me that opportunity. Living, working and playing in Peru enabled me to see, hear, feel and taste this beautiful culture and I’m forever grateful for the Challenges Abroad team.Volunteer - Brianna - Peru
I had an amazing time getting involved in the school, I helped out as well as learning about this country and it's people's history. I would love to go back again in the future and spend more time learning and exploring Peru.Volunteer - Peru
