Peru Orphanage Childcare Volunteer Program

Peru, the country with the Peruvian highlands receives less precipitation in the summer, and the weather is pleasant, making Cusco and Machu Picchu the most popular summer destinations for all travelers. Peru's most elaborate and elegant weavings are as complicated as the country itself. Festivals commemorate old rites, the urban avant-garde encourages innovation, and nature provides breathtaking variety. The major lure for most visitors to Peru is trekking over the breathtaking Andes to the world famous Inca fortress of Machu Picchu. However, this only covers a small portion of the country's riches. Peru has a diverse range of landforms, including perplexing geoglyphs.

Volunteering with children in another country is a fantastic way to help those in need while also learning and working in new places, such as Peru. If you like helping children from low-income families who cannot afford childcare, consider volunteering at one of the numerous kindergartens and daycare facilities throughout the world.
