Make a REAL difference in Peru with Childcare & Development Program
- Volunteer Opportunity posted by Love Volunteers
The mission of this program is to care for the orphaned, abandoned and impoverished children of Peru. The children attending these projects require a lot of care, attention and most importantly, companionship. Volunteers spend their time caring for the children, helping with their education, playing games and arranging fun activities during leisure time, like sports or trips to the park. Attention and companionship is what the children in these projects need the most. These projects are severely understaffed and underfunded, which is why they are in urgent need of volunteers. For volunteers who truly want to make a difference to the lives of disadvantaged children, those orphaned, abandoned or impoverished, this program serves to protect and care for those who need it most. Every child deserves a safe and happy upbringing, and this program aims to offer that chance to those who have been largely forgotten by society.
Goals of this Project:
- Provide essential childcare to vulnerable children of Cusco – Peru
- Improve the future prospects of the children in Peru
- Give impoverished children quality care, compassion and a sense of hope
- Enable inter-cultural exchange which benefits both locals and international volunteers alike
- Housing Available
- Language/Cultural Support Available
- International Volunteers
How To Apply
Love Volunteers welcomes all those 18 years and over who wish to assist in the ongoing support and development of marginalized and at-risk children of Peru.

However, volunteers with suitable education, qualifications or experience are highly sought after.
