About Destination and Volunteer Opportunities

About Peru

Peru is a country in western South America. It is famous for the Lake Titicaca basin in the southeast, and tourist attractions such as Machu Picchu, the site of ancient Inca ruins. Despite being a tropical country, it has a variety of climates due to the Andes and the southwest winds.

Volunteer Opportunities in Peru

Volunteer opportunities in Peru by Freepackers are humanitarian projects. Freepackers work with a partner organization in Peru. The organization is dedicated to providing disadvantaged children in Cusco with access to education. This NGO has set up many projects since its creation. The participation of volunteers is essential to the sustainability of this association.
