VolunTour: Cusco, Peru

Make a difference in the lives of Peruvian children in a small rural community by volunteering with a local nonprofit organization to repair furniture, plant trees & more.

About Your Trip

On this VolunTour to Cusco, Peru, show your Heart to Serve with WorldVentures Foundation™ and the people of the Huilloc community to improve the lives of Peruvian children.

VolunTours are professionally planned, guided trips that put volunteers to work beautifying communities, building infrastructure and brightening the lives of children. You will participate in a child-serving project as you become immersed in the culture.

At a Glance:
• Many children in and around Cusco live in poverty, and one of the main challenges is finding ways to generate income. To make a living, some children and families in the area sell clothing or accessories, such as knitted items, musical instruments and clay pots.
• You will have the opportunity to assist in a community, helping individuals repair buildings, along with other activities such as fixing furniture and planting trees.
• You will also have the chance to experience a sense of the worldviews and culture of the Huilloc community and to share your own with them.



This trip will close by April 1.

Destination

Cusco is a city situated within the Peruvian Andes. It was the historic capital of the Inca Empire from the 13th-16th centuries, ending with the Spanish conquest. A UNESCO World Heritage site, the city contains an abundance of Spanish architecture from the days of early colonialization.

The ruins of Machu Picchu perch on a mountain ridge above the Sacred Valley in the Urubamba Province of Peru. Built in the 15th century, Machu Picchu’s exact use remains a mystery, but most archaeologists believe it was built as an estate for the Incan emperor Pachacuti. More than 200 structures were built here, cleverly constructed to prevent damage from earthquakes and heavy rainfall.
