Volunteer and Learn Spanish in Peru

Country: Peru,
Type: Humanitarian & Community Development , Working with children,
Organisation: WorkingAbroad Projects

Opportunities are available to volunteer in Peru, in the city of Cusco. You can join for 2 weeks up to 6 months volunteering with children and animals, while taking proper Spanish lessons to enhance your language skills.

Volunteers in Cusco are able to participate in a range of different projects, such as:

  • After-School project which is a place where children from the poorer neighborhoods can go after school time, encouraging them to spend less time playing on the streets and being exposed to bad influences. As a volunteer there are many things that you can do, including; helping with homework, playing games, teaching English, giving a cooking class and so on.
  • Dog shelter project where apart from feeding and playing with the dogs in the woods, they also need help with improving the shelter itself, going out on the streets to rescue sick/pregnant street dogs, going to the veterinarian and even assisting in medical campaigns in the communities around Cusco and helping to educate people about how to treat their pets.
  • Disabled Children project where attention and care is given to kids with disabilities, help them with physiotherapy and taking care of the children and adults in general. Even if you don’t have experience, they also welcome help with small tasks, in the kitchen, and improving the project infrastructure in general.

The projects typically don’t run throughout the day, which means that you can do Spanish courses in the morning before going to the projects, or in some cases in the afternoon after you have been on the project. It is also possible to combine several projects, in case you would like to volunteer for full days and assist several projects. Volunteers can join from 2 weeks till 6 months in duration, and add Spanish courses to their time volunteering in Cusco.
