About the workproject

We need 3 volunteers

My name is Alcides and I am the director of this orphanage in Peru. It is a home for children and teenagers at risk that were abandoned in the streets of Cusco. We have founded the orphanage in 2002 and currently house 25+ children aged 5 to 19.

We are a non-profit organization and can provide shelter, support, care and structure thanks to the work and donations of volunteers like you. In the last ten years we have been able to build two houses with shared sleeping rooms and also finished a kitchen plus dining room.

The orphanage is located in Oropesa, a remote village in the outskirts of Cusco, Perú.

(Please note that the host only speaks Spanish, therefore its recommendable to send your email in Spanish)

My name is Alcides and I am the director of this orphanage in Peru. We started this project in 2002 and have helped more than 80 kids out of the streets of Cusco. We are a non profit / non governmental organisation and therefore need all the help we can get from volunteers around the world.

Of course we´ll invite you to share meals with us and the children, so you can enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinner with them.
