Volunteer with horses in Peru

Volunteer with Horses and experience the rich Peruvian culture while volunteering in the incredible city of Cusco. Volunteer with horses alongside the dedicated team at a beautiful ranch in the heart of the Andean Mountains.

Help care for rescued horses at the Peru Horse Sanctuary! This programme provides an unforgettable experience for volunteers who wish to help rescued horses; and help save a species! The Peruvian Andes Highlander Horse is at risk of extinction due to such high numbers being killed for meat.

Volunteers work with local Peruvian staff assisting them to feed and prepare food for the horses. Additionally volunteers will assist with washing and grooming the horses and with cleaning the shelters and paddocks. Volunteers will also help with other general tasks and animals at the shelter.

Why Globalteer?

As a UK registered charity, Globalteer is different than many other organisations who connect volunteers with delete projects around the world, as we are 100% not-for-profit, so the more money we raise, the more we can invest in helping the delete projects we work with.

By volunteering with us you will be helping established projects with long-term goals to bring practical and achievable solutions. All the projects we work with have been chosen by Globalteer because they are answering a genuine need, and are working towards making asustainable difference in their local community.

Because our projects have clear objectives and a demand for volunteers to help achieve these objectives, there will always be work for you to do - every volunteer has a vital role to play during their placement.

Where your money goes

The placement fee that we ask for not only covers the costs of organising your placement, but unlike most other organisations, a donation is always made directly to the project on behalf of each volunteer – no matter how short the placement. So not only will you be helping the elephants while volunteering, but your donation will support the welfare of the elephants and the sanctuary's long-term objectives in the years to come!

We don't charge a registration or application fee, and you are required to pay nothing until you are accepted and ready to commit to your placement. More than that, we clearly list everything that is included in your placement on our website, which as a minimum includes accommodation, transfer on arrival, in-country support, letter of reference (if requested) and orientation.

As a charity, we are legally required to ensure that all money we receive is used to achieve our charitable objectives, so you can be sure that every dollar donated by you will go towards a good cause!
