Client Reviews

quotes I have only been here in Cusco for a month and I have loved my experience thus far. ProyectoPeru has gone above and beyond to make sure my stay here has been safe and enjoyable. The staff is lovely and always seeking out my best interest. The volunteer projects I am working in have been very well organized and I have loved being a part of this program. I am currently volunteering at a dog shelter and working with kids of all ages in an after school program. I absolutely love the projects and what they entail. ProyectoPeru did a great job organizing each of my projects and I have loved the experience. I highly recommend this program as they are very sweet, down to earth people who are trying to make a true change here in the Cuscan community. Thank you ProyectoPeru for making my first journey to Peru so great and it will for sure be memorable.

quotes Volunteering through Proyecto Peru was by far the best decision I made when I decided to go abroad for the month of June. The team was very outgoing and organized, checking in on me regularly to ensure a very smooth process in Cusco. The Spanish classes were very helpful, as the instructor spoke at a level I understood to further improve my understanding of the language. My home stay was amazing; not only was I guaranteed three fresh meals a day, but I was taken care of by a very selfless and hospitable family. My project was so much fun and run by a very charismatic individual who cares so much about his program and his community. I also made lasting friendships with volunteers from different parts of the world, and I look forward to seeing them again. I could go on, but volunteering through Proyecto Peru was an experience that will not be taken for granted, and I thank the team so much for making my time in Cusco memorable.
