Orphanage / Childcare Project

volunteer in orphanage-childcare project in peru

Poverty and deprivation is widespread in Peru. Many children are homeless and live on the street, while for many orphaned children, their only hope is to find an orphanage that is will house, educate and feed them. Many orphanages have been doing just that but most of them are underfunded and resource poor. Hence, volunteers are urgently required to take care of the children. You will provide much needed help to the existing staff to take care of the children and provide them with much needed love.

What difference does this project make?

New Hope Volunteer helps orphans actively by supporting volunteers in activities that educate, care and provide love for the children. Any donations made by volunteers will also go a long way towards ensuring financial viability of the project. Join the project and make a difference by supporting orphans in Cusco, Urubamba. During the project, you can also enjoy visits to Machu Picchu and Amazon rainforests.
