In this project, you will work together with the Peruvian Ministry of Culture. The main objective is the preservation and protection of archaeological sites, mainly Inca Ruins.

You will support the local workers in all types of activities, from protecting and restoring archaeological sites to cleaning, maintaining, and registering these sites.
