Volunteer on Community Development in Peru in this project to live in a rural village that offers full immersion into a traditional Andean life based on subsistence agriculture and textile production. This unique life experience will take you to the Sacred Valley of Cusco to get to know first-hand the agricultural practices and process of making textiles with natural dyes.
Living with a local family will give you the opportunity to learn their language (they speak Quechua; Spanish is their second language and they do not speak any English), experience their lifestyle, and taste their cuisine – with recipes dating back to Inca times still on the menu.
The accommodation and meals are basic due to the remote setting of this rural village, but you will be stunned by the beautiful landscapes. It´s important to be healthy and physically prepared to do manual labour for most of your volunteer time (your tasks will include preparing the earth, seeding and harvesting). So, if you are a hard worker and you are ready to do experience things that you never expected, this is the program for you.
