About Peru Volunteer
Peru Volunteer organizes volunteer work Peru. We are a small and flexible organization that wants to offer you a great cultural experience in Peru. Next to our projects, we organize Spanish language course and accommodation for you. We want your work and commitment to have as much impact as possible. While, at the same time you can develop yourself and learn new skills.
With the help of our volunteers, we want to build up our projects. You can really make a difference while you are developing your skills and talents. Our staff will help you the best we can. On a small scale, we provide assistance and help to a part of the local population. The activities from Peru Volunteer can reach their maximum impact when they are long-term. We hope that you can document your progress the best way you can, so the next volunteer can continue your efforts.
Way we work
We prefer personal contact with our volunteers. After email contact, we will have a Skype call. You can ask all your questions and we can find out what you really want to do in Peru. Together we will construct your program. Pre-departure support will be part of our service.
In Peru you will be picked up from the airport. There will be 24-hour assistance in English and Spanish for our volunteers, in case of any problem or emergency. Peru Volunteer will do its best to give you a pleasant stay in Peru. And when you feel comfortable, you can put all your energy in your volunteer work.

About Peru Volunteer team members
My name is Thomas and I started Peru Volunteer at the end of 2013.
In 2002, I volunteered myself around Cusco. Later on, I worked for a Dutch NGO in Guatemala. Both experiences were intense, but beautiful. The “rewarding feeling” which both jobs gave me, was an essential part of the motivation to start “Peru Volunteer”.
Helping people with fewer options than yourself is a good thing to do. While you share your skills and energy to help people, you will receive gratitude and the positive feeling of doing something worthwhile. Next to helping others, Peru Volunteer is also focused on providing an unforgettable stay in Peru for the volunteers. To offer volunteers the possibility to learn and expand their (life) skills, is a great process.
I hope we can build up volunteer projects together. With the help of volunteers, we can continue to expand our programs. For I have the feeling that we only just got started. I hope to see you soon in Peru.
I am Marcelo from Peru. Since January 2017 I’m a Coordinator for Peru Volunteer.
I came to Cusco 13 years ago, and it feels like my home town now. It is a beautiful and great place to live.I studied tourism in Cusco. Later on I lived in Switzerland for 5 years, where I studied music and learned German. Because of this experience I know what it means to live in a different culture.
When I came back to Peru I started working in Tourism. Showing my own country and its beautiful culture is a passion of mine. I will help you orientate in Cusco, and I can give you tips & tricks to get the most out of your stay in Peru.
