We can proudly say that since 2005, Proyecto Peru has been able to do so! We have received many volunteers and interns who contributed to more than 40 projects such as after school programs, early childhood development, dog shelters and much more. We also received many donations from our supporters, donating food, equipment (like refrigerators), educational materials and much more.
However, now we need your help to get us through the lockdown until our clients come back!
The unexpected lockdown is now endangering Proyecto Peru´s activities and we need your help to continue supporting more than 40 local projects and communities in 2021.
Proyecto Peru envisions a network of travellers dedicated to connecting with the communities they visit and setting a standard for responsible and sustainable tourism. In the past years, Proyecto Peru has contributed to driving positive change and improvement by:
1. Sending responsible volunteers and investing in local projects to contribute to positive change and development of the Peruvian communities
2. Sending students to host families (with which many local families have been able to generate extra income)
3. To give native Spanish teachers the opportunity to teach and share the Spanish language
4. To not just send our students away to a volunteering project, but to provide them continuous support in their experience, making sure they leave Peru with a cross-cultural, giving and rewarding experience
Proyecto Peru is passionate about providing an intercultural experience. The continuous in-country support is an important aspect for us. With weekly meetings we make sure the students contribute to the project while they discover, immerse, experience and grow inter-culturally. Moreover, we match students with the project, making sure everyone's special skills or talents are connected with the right project in which they can contribute the most.
