PROGRAMME OVERVIEW

On this Challenge you get to spend six weeks exploring and working in the local community on a range of projects aimed at improving education quality in the Sacred Valley. You'll be challenged to step out of your comfort zone and think creatively as you're immersed in the incredible local culture of Urubamba. During your 6 weeks, you will take on the amazing 5-day Salkantay trek to Machu Picchu. You will trek through mountain passes reaching heights of 4800m, cross streams through rural villages, and learn about the journey of the Inca's. Your programme will end with your final week spent exploring the Colca Canyon and the spectacular city of Arequipa. 

This is for you if:

  • you're a school leaver and ready for a gap break 
  • you're interested in learning about grass roots community development 
  • you want to gain experience teaching and working with children
  • you want to use your skills to make a difference whilst travelling
  • you want to travel, have fun, and meet like minded people

It’s time to be part of something bigger.

Your journey starts here.

 

 

 

 

 

COVID 19- GIVING YOU PEACE OF MIND

 

To deal with the uncertainty that comes with COVID-19, we have introduced the following guarantees so you can confidently book your 2021/2022 volunteer programme today.

COVID-19 REASSURANCE

Although we are confident that programmes will go ahead as planned, if your programme is affected by Covid-19 travel restrictions, your programme will be postponed to the following year, and your fundraising deadlines will be extended. 

DESTINATION FLEXIBILITY

We are continuously monitoring the advice of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) and speaking with our teams on the ground to ensure we are fully aware of all on-going situations. Although international travel is beginning to open up, if your destination is affected by coronavirus travel restrictions, you will be able to move your programme to one of our other destinations 

ADDITIONAL HEALTH AND SAFETY MEASURES

Our volunteer's health and safety whilst overseas is our biggest priority. We are putting in place additional measures to enhance health and safety practices when travel resumes. Some of these measures include increased cleaning at our accommodation, reducing the number of volunteers sharing bathroom facilities, mandatory hand-washing before meals and an in-depth review of all in-country risk management processes.
