Cuzco is known the world over as the enchanting heart of the Inca civilization and the gateway to Machu Picchu, one of the great wonders of the world. With its narrow, cobblestone streets, colonial architecture atop Incan stonework, and locals in vibrant and traditional dress, you will forget you are living in the 21st century.


Projects

Globe Aware offers many different opportunities, including working in a home for impoverished children from rural households. While some of the children have families, most are too poor to care for them. Without this home or "albergue," these children would have no educational opportunities.


Other service vacation projects include improvements and maintenance to facilities, such as painting classrooms, creating a garden, or constructing desks and beds. The children attend public school in Cuzco during the day, but you will have ample opportunities to work directly with them after classes and on the weekends. You may also visit a local family to construct a Lorena stove. Your hosts will arrange your volunteer projects prior to your trip based on the immediate needs of the children's home.
