The Project

Volunteer in Peru with Globalteer to be part of an inspirational and holistic after-school project for 80 children in a mountain village near Cusco. The project gives free classes and homework help to under-privileged children. The project is also a safe place to play, to learn traditional music and dance. The children are provided free fruit, clean drinking water and a nutritious lunch. Join us at Picaflor House Community Project and make a difference!

Picaflor House Community Project was founded by Globalteer in 2010. After setting up an after school programme in Cambodia, we recognized the need for a similar programme in the region of Cusco where we saw vulnerable children wandering the streets after state school classes had finished.

We visited a number of communities in order to identify where the need and the potential for impact was greatest. The project was opened in the village of Oropesa in November 2010.

Many of the villagers the project works with have moved from remote mountain areas to the village in search of work and a better future for their children. Their level of formal education is often low and it is not uncommon for them to have left education after primary school. This can lead to low incomes, a risky reliance on subsistence farming and poor awareness of basic health and hygiene regimes, resulting in poor health. In addition, for many of the parents in the village, Spanish is their second language after Quechua. This therefore makes it difficult for them to help and support their children with their school work.

Picaflor House has worked closely with the community to address both the problems and their causes and is really making a difference.

How Picaflor House is helping

For the first year the project worked out of the local school in Oropesa, and taught classes three times per week in English, Art, and Mathematics.

Picaflor House now has its own site with classrooms, art room, kitchen, playground and garden and is attended by up to 80 children every day. Activities include an academic programme supporting the state school curriculum. Also a non-academic programme including chess, sports, photography, and traditional music and dance. A healthy lunch programme has been added for children most in need.

Volunteer in Peru with this project and you can be part of these amazing programmes supporting the kids in Cusco.

Why the project need volunteers

Picaflor House receives no state funding. Only through volunteer support, private donations and grants the project continues working with the children of Oropesa and their families, setting them up for a bright future.

Project Location: The UNESCO world heritage-listed city of Cusco in Peru’s breath-taking Andes Mountains. The city is home to countless museums, restaurants, Inca ruins and fabulous Spanish colonial architecture.

Main Volunteer Activities: Volunteers work with our foreign and local Peruvian staff assisting with English, arts & crafts, and computing classes. Also helping out with sports & games and in the kindergarten.

Hours: Volunteers work from Mon to Fri, afternoons only, with mornings free for sightseeing or Spanish classes. Weekends are free for relaxing or travelling through this beautiful and diverse country.

Volunteers make a huge difference at this project where you work with the permanent project staff helping with a variety of activities to suit your skills and experience. Volunteer in Peru with Globalteer to bring much needed extra pairs of hands and introduce new enthusiasm, energy and ideas into every day of your stay.

Journée Typique

Volunteers work from 1pm to 5pm, Monday to Friday with all weekends off. This gives you plenty of time to relax, take in some sightseeing or attend Spanish classes in the mornings. You can then take the bus to the project which is about 45 minutes from the centre of Cusco in time to help out with lunch. You don't need to speak Spanish to be an effective volunteer at any of our Peru projects. Many volunteers like to take advantage of being in a Spanish-speaking country to learn Spanish or to brush up on those rusty language skills.

All our volunteers in Cusco have the option of taking Spanish classes. Classes are tailor-made to suit each volunteer's level of Spanish so it doesn't matter if you are a complete beginner or just need to brush up a bit.

Tasks when you Volunteer in Peru

There is always a range of tasks to be carried out by volunteers and you will work with our local staff on some or all of the following:

  • Assisting local staff preparing for classes
  • Assisting teachers in English classes
  • Helping out with arts & crafts, games and sports
  • Assisting children with their school homework
  • Assisting our local teachers with maths, reading and communication classes
  • Helping to supervise children on local excursions and outings
  • Assisting in cleaning classrooms and playgrounds
  • Assisting with general maintenance around the project

Activités de Loisir

Whether you plan your entire trip in advance or decide to wait until you get to Peru, our team in Cusco are all very well travelled and can offer advice and help in planning the perfect itinerary for your weekends or for travel before or after your placement. Here are just a few of Peru’s treasures to whet your appetite.

Cusco

Cusco is a beautiful city that has something to offer everyone from Inca ruins and splendid Spanish colonial architecture to elegant squares and outstanding mountain scenery. The historic city centre is a lively hub of cafes, restaurants and bars with dozens of boutiques and markets. Many shops offer an astonishing range of unique locally made goods to take home as a souvenir of your trip to Peru. There are museums, galleries, churches and monasteries to visit and every Sunday sees a magnificent civil parade in the City’s stunning main square, the Plaza de Armas.

Cusco’s Indian and Catholic traditions are frequently celebrated with street parades, live music and food stallsspringing up across the city at any excuse. There are also some wonderful walks and hikes in and around the city centre. You can stroll amongst whitewashed houses and along the cobbled lanes in the Bohemian quarter of San Blas. Maybe climb high above the city to the Inca fortress at Sacsayhuaman and take in the unrivalled views of the city and the surrounding Andes.

Machu Picchu

Surely the number one reason that many visitors come to Peru is to visit the incomparable wonder of Machu Picchu. Whatever you read and no  matter how many photos you have seen, nothing can quite prepare you for the first time you see the Inca citadel rising high above a bend in the river.

Machu Picchu is easily accessible from Cusco. You can go there by luxury train, trek the amazing Inca Trail high in the Andes or take any other number of routes all ending with lost city itself. Built, but never completed by the Incas around 1450 the Inca capital was only re-discovered in 1911. The breath-taking lost city of the Incas is now discovered by hundreds of enthralled visitors every day.

The Sacred Valley

The Sacred Valley of the Incas is a must-see on anyone’s Peru itinerary. Barely half an hour’s drive from Cusco and you will find a magical, steep-sided valley where fresh mountain rivers and streams tumble between ancient mountains and majestic glaciers.

The Sacred Valley’s centuries-old towns and villages are home to remarkably preserved Inca forts and citadels. Markets with traditional textiles and souvenirs draw visitors to lovely towns like Pisac, Chinchero and Ollantaytambo. The amazing salt terraces and pre-Inca agricultural terraces at Maras are also an easy day trip from Cusco.
