The Project:

The children cared for are between 9 and 17 years of age. Their native languages are Quechua and Machiguenga although all speak Spanish. Besides providing them with food, shelter and education, most of all they need lots of love and acceptance. Since there is no public funding available for this project we are urgently looking for volunteers! This project offers you the opportunity to care for children in midst of the Peruvian Jungle.


Your main activities are child care and to give a documentary report about the project. Your tasks include:

  • daily work and care of the children.
  • assisting with the children’s education.
  • helping create and conduct group games, role play games, sports etc.
  • assisting with keeping the facilities clean and tidy.
  • daily errands and other administrative tasks.
  • assisting with monitoring tasks by filing reports for NGO Taxi.
  • maintaining a diary of your time with the project (photos and blog).

The exact tasks you will be asked to carry out will depend on the current needs and priorities of the project as determined by the camp manager and NGO Taxi management. The tasks stated here are therefore examples of some of the possible types of activities you will be asked to do.

Working hours: As a volunteer aid-worker, you are expected to work on your project 30 hours per week. If you so desire, you are welcome to work more.


You will travel from the mountainous region of Cusco to a very different climatic zone in the jungle of the Amazon. The project is located east of the Andes on the Amazon River, a tributary called Madre de Dios (Spanish for mother of god). You will be living in the Biosphere Reserve of the Manu National Park, which was declared a World Heritage Site in 1987 by UNESCO. The children shelter is about a 10-min walk from the local town, which has internet cafes, restaurants and supply shops. You will be amazed by natural wildlife and plant life in this region!
