You'll feel the altitude (2,761 m - 9,058 ft) when you arrive in Ayacucho! This Andean town retains its colonial architecture and character. The pace is slow, the air is clean, the skies are blue, and the people are friendly. Sure, there's tourism, but not the rampant tourism and high prices of Cusco.
Join the staff at a school for special-needs children. The facility serves 41 youngsters with different disabilities, providing care, education, therapy, counseling and vocational training. The education services are matched to the kids’ abilities and age; meals and nutrition evaluation, medical care and physical therapy treatment are also offered at the school. Volunteers support the staff in areas of their interests, skills, and educational background.
