High School Special volunteer plays ball with children in a care center in PeruBased in Cusco, Peru, Projects Abroad’s Care & Community project combines a wide variety of daily activities aimed at improving the conditions in the local community. As a volunteer, the majority of your time will be spent doing practical activities, including renovating, painting, cleaning, and gardening at some of our placements.

Your project will include some Spanish lessons in order to help you learn a bit of the local language and practical workshops so you can interact with the community. Improving your Spanish will also make daily life much easier. Some of your time will be spent working with local Peruvians and may include a few days in a kindergarten, helping to organize a play day with the children or spending time working with the elderly in a care home.

In Cusco, you will live with a welcoming host family, allowing you to experience the Peruvian culture firsthand. It is also a fantastic opportunity to practice your Spanish and maybe even pick up some of the local indigenous language, Quechua!

On the weekend you will visit the breath-taking site of Machu Picchu that Peru is famous for, and soak up the atmosphere in one of the bustling and colourful markets.
