Awaiting Angels Volunteering Program is different from the majority of other programs in that Awaiting Angels is a local organization and charges to volunteers a small administrative fee to fund our activities; and a just amount to cover food and; family like accommodation.
Awaiting Angels is a self sustaining grassroots Peruvian organization; we have a small but effective administrative staff and do not rely on government or institutional support.
