The heart of the Andes is the town of Cusco, where remnants of a well-preserved historic civilization are abundant and Peruvian culture is alive and well. Only 45 minutes away lies a small town where cobblestone streets meander by traditional Peruvian houses. This pueblo will be your home for the majority of the trip.
Education is key to unlocking economic doors in this small Andean village. To achieve our purpose of cultural interaction, friendship exchange, and uplifting youth in the village of Andahuaylillas, assist with an informal after-school program that helps local children continue to develop. Help with English homework, play educational games, and get involved in other activities such as a sack race, soccer game, kite flying, and more, creating lasting memories both for you and the children involved . (Please Note: Due to the pandemic, service projects may differ to ensure safety of the group and local community. Alternative projects include developing clean burning stoves and chicken coops to provide sources of income for the local villages during these difficult times. Please inquire with us for more information.)
