Volunteer work out of Lima doing research for our Perupedia Website and Blogging about their activities in Peru.
Founded by Julio C. Tello on September 4th, 2007, the Karikuy Organization was created with the vision of bringing people from all walks of life together to experience Peru. From remote paradises to hidden metropolitan hot spots, Karikuy takes you to the center of one of the most colorful cultures on earth with the aim of broadening your perspective of the world through social and traditional tourism.
An old Inca saying defines the organization and its goals, Karikuy; "to live life with an open heart". Karikuy applies this motto in the way we do business, as we're always thoughtful of our customers who in turn become friends and collaborators.
Karikuys' survival as a company and humanitarian organization is in the hands of our customers, whose support and business fund our programs. Our mission is to provide travelers up to date and useful information for travel inside Peru. We bring the world closer to Peru by promoting its destination and services as well as doing all we can to help the Peruvian people through our humanitarian programs. Our profits go straight to our volunteer and humanitarian programs and the ultimate goal of improving the social conditions within Peru.
Creating a database and blog about Peruvian culture we wish to raise awareness for future travelers to come visit Peru. Our volunteers cover a wide range of topics from climate change to Gastronomy, Local Events, Music, Travel and Tourism and much more. Our Volunteer Planet website aims to promote volunteer programs worldwide while Perupedia focuses on gathering information about Peru.
